Hi any help appriacted. I want to create an Action that

  1. opens a saved file that containing an adjustment layer folder.
  2. duplicate the specific adjustment layer folder to the previous opened document (no a specific document)

 

I can get it to work to specific files but not generic previous opened document.

I would not recommend it, but copying the Group and closing the file should reveal the previously foremost image and enable you to paste there.  Actions are fairly limited in some regards, so maybe you should look into Scripting.

But if you should need to run this on a large number of images opening and closing the curves file again and again could slow you down.
