Title

Save as PDF script fails

Post

I am trying to run a script to save a one page record as a PDF so it can be emailed, but the script does not work.  I can run each operation from the menu, and everything works fine. The PDF is created correctly.  Running the script produces no PDF file, and NO ERRORS.  I have added a wide range of custom dialog steps to display the values of the variables at every point, and everyhting seems correct, yet NOTHING HAPPENS!

 

...

Set Variable [$pdfFileName; Value:"CofC"&Database::RecordID&".pdf"]

Set Variable [$pdfFilePath; Value:"filewin://Svrname/VOL/SHIPPING/" & $pdfFileName"]

Save Records as PDF [Restore; $pdfFilepath; Current record]

 

I'm Stumped!!!  Does anyone see something wrong in the lines above, or have an alternate way to create this functionality?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
