[OS X TeX] OT: Applescript help

I'll have to say that the TeXShop "Paste Spreadsheet Cells" macro is a complete mystery to me. When I run "csv2latex" from terminal I get what I would expect. Running "Paste Spreadsheet Cells" from TeXShop with some csv data in the clipboard doesn't give me anything like tabular data. In effect it just pastes the csv data, commas and all, into the TeXShop document.

Obviously I am missing something.

This is easy to implement with a command line option to the ruby script, but I'm struggling with a way of passing that option via Applescript. The current Applescript uses "choose from list" to present the list of table style options.  What I'd like to do is add a checkbox to that dialogue corresponding to the option, but this doesn't seem to be possible.  Can anyone familiar with Applescript suggest a way of implementing this?
