Title

Saving PDF files on a network filemaker database

Post


     Hi,
      My apologies if this has been answered before .. I searched and didn't find anything quite
     similar.

     I wrote a script to build up a PDF file .. save it to a folder (relative to the database ) and then
     attach that PDF file to an email message for sending. This all works great on the host where the
     DB is resident.

     I would like to do the same thing on a remote database ... I've tried fmnet:://IP_Address/DB.fp12/<relative file path>

     That didn't seem to work.

      

     I then tried file:/Volume/mounted_volume_name/<folder>/<filename>

     And that didn't seem to work either (even though the volume is a shared volume across our Macs
     (and,yes, this is on a Mac).

     Any pointers as to what I might be doing wrong?

     Thanks much,

     Jeff
