Add files to iTunes in ascending order

This script adds files (audio files) to iTunes in the STOCK FOLDER in an ascending order (with Date Added with up arrow selected) so track 1 will be at the top and the greater numbers below it as per usual.  One can have normal numbering or leading zero numbers from 1 to 9 (01, 02, etc.).

The script stops if there are no files in the STOCK FOLDER.

There is spoken text confirmation and iTunes is paused once all the files are processed.

I usually place this applescript in the Scripts main menu item at the top right.

Enjoy!
