      Impossible to Save PDF to a shared volume on the network with Mac

      Post

           Hi, I'm using a remote Filemaker file that I built, and running a script that Saves as PDF: the name of the file is dynamic so I have to supply the entire path (path+filename) as a variable ($path)

           The target location is a hard disk in my LAN network

           First of all I discovered that i need to use 2 variables because the path is different if you run the script from Windows or from Mac, but this seems to work, I put both the variables in the PDF dialogue (see picture 1)

           With Windows I have no problem, but with Mac when the script tries to Save the PDF I have a warning, and it says that I cannot Save the PDF in this location. It seems like Mac needs to estabilish a connection with the remote location in the network (maybe I only have to access it with Finder) before saving the PDF

           Anyone having the same problem? It's not so easy, especially when I have to explain how to use the file and the script to someone that it's prepared to face informatic issues

            

           Thanks in advance!
