I've got a ExtendScript that only works with paths and I've got a compound path, so how can I convert my compound path into a path?

Pathfinder -> Expand should work - if not could you post a screenshot of Illustrator?

Yeah that's right, turns out I was trying to do something that didn't really work very well with paths, oh well, cheers Jon! –  Ahmed Nuaman Sep 16 '11 at 21:29

If "compound path" are two pathes combined using Ctrl + 8, then maybe you could use the following:

Else you'd have to uncompound them (don't know what the ExtendedScript does).
