[OS X TeX] Applescript in TS

I am using this applescript to run Excalibur on the front window of TS:

-- Applescript direct

tell application "TeXShop"
	get path of document of window 1
	set fileName to result
	save fileName
end tell
do shell script "open -a " & "/Applications/TeX//Excalibur-4.0.7/Excalibur.app " & quoted form of fileName

I want applescript to save the TS file before running excalibur, otherwise excalibur will use the last saved copy. My problem is that the naive "save fileName” which I added right before "end tell”  does not do the job (although the script runs without errors). Can someone tell me what is the correct way to save the file?
