Opening a Snapshot Link
I've got a solution that requires multiple end of month reports to be run and I've been looking for a way to automate them so that our accounting person isn't wasting time clicking on a button and waiting for the report to generate. I can't move them over to a totally automated server side script because the data is saved as a PDF.
So my first thought was to use a snapshot link. FM Server will run a script that goes through and creates the report and saves the records as a snapshot link. The user will then open the snapshot link and save the records as a PDF.
What I'm wondering is if anyone knows how to open up a snapshot link from FileMaker? Like, she would still click on a button but that button would be attached to script that says if the Application Version is Pro open a specified snapshot link.
This would be in a Windows based environment. Thanks for any assistance!
