      Generating file names when creating PDF but manually selecting where to save

      Post

      I am using file maker pro 10, and want to create a script that will save a report as a PDF. The problem I am having is that when the 'Save As' dialog comes up, rather than being called untitled.pdf, i want the name from a field to show up instead. I still want the user to be able to manually chose where the file is saved.

       

      I have figured out how to assign a variable and set that as the filename, but when i do that, it automatically saves the PDF, without giving the user an option to choose where it's saved.

       

      I know I can copy the field I want to use as the name to the clipboard as part of the script and manually paste that into the file name box, but is there any other way to to this automatically?
