RE:  Saving a Record to the Desktop Using a Fieldname

Post

Hello, I'm a beginner at scripting and I'm trying to write a script that saves a record to the desktop as a pdf file using a field name from the database.  My script is as follows:

Go to Related Record [Show only related rocords; From table: "ClearanceDatabase"; Using layout: "Packet1" (ClearanceDatabase)]

Set Variable [$PacketName; Value:Get (DesktopPath) & ClearancePacketRequest::PDFName & ".pdf"]

Save Records as PDF [Restore; No dialog; "$PacketName"; Automatically open; Current record]

 

My file path in the Save Records as PDF step is:

filemac:/Desktop/$PacketName

 

and when I run the script I get an error that says $PacketName (no quotes here as the file name is correct as per the field in the database I'm naming it after) could not be created on this disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk.

Any ideas as to what I may be doing incorrectly?
