Title

Report to pdf to email

Post

Hi

I have read this post 

http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/e019cbdb2e

but am unable to really follow it being a FMPro10 newbie and a bit of a general dummy!

I want to have a button on a report that saves the the report as a pdf in a certain folder with a specific name that will change every time i generate the report (different search dates); then attach that pdf to an email via the smtp function (ie gmail address)

I can get it to a stage whereby the email is generated with an attached pdf but the pdf has the same name each time thus wiping out previous pdf i want to save. Is there a way to bring a dialog box into it that asks me to enter the filepath/name for the pdf, then attach that pdf to the email

Cheers

Chris
