      save to pdf todays work only

      Post

      Is it possible to save todays work only to pdf instead of the entire database? If so can someone give me step by step instructions.

          Yes you can, how you do it depends on the information you record in your database.

           

          If you have multiple records all marked with today's date in a date field, you'd perform a find for just those records (you can do this manually or with a script.), then use save as PDF and select the records being browsed option to output all the records you just found that are marked with today's date.

               When I go into my script, I don't see an option to save a date. It just says save to PDF. Nothing else. Is it because I am using the trial version?

                 No, you would perform a find to find all records with a given date or range of dates. Select save as | PDF and use the records being browsed option so that the PDF contains all the records you just "found".

                This sounds like an excellant way of preserving a log of the days changes so in the event of a system failure a restore could be done from teh previous day and then the only update would be whatever is in the saved pdf.

                 

                How would one go about scripting this to be performed, say on application load and then not just each day, but periodically during the day, say every hour with the file name being created set as "MyDatabase Daily Incremental dd/mm/yyy hh:mm" and obvilusly being saved to specified network paths (one locally and one remotely)?

                 

                For got to add, would there need to be a separate script for each table in the database ?

                     You can create an interval script to do backups.
