You can do it in two steps.
Save it to a location on your hard drive (can be temporary items folder).
Then insert it from that location into a container.
This can be done by hand or via a script.
Thanks for answering PhilModjunk.
I think what you are saying is that I should save it to a Documnet folder in the file with the FMP files and then use the name to retrieve it to a container field in my table. Naturally, I want to do this in a script. The tool they give us doesn't seem to provide a way to save it directly to a table - is that right?
If you have an example script I would appreciate it.
If you save it to temporary items, you don't have to clean up a clutter of these pdf files later, so I suggest that location on your computer if you are not going to use the "store only a reference" option. If you use the "reference" option, you need to save to a location that is directly accessible by all users such as a shared directory that is mapped/mounted identically on all client machines.
To save the PDF:
Set Variable [ $Path ; Value: "file:" & Get ( TemporaryPath ) & YourTable::FileNameField & ".PDF"]
Save Records as PDF [Restore; no dialog ; "$Path" ; //specify the other options you need for your script here]
Insert File [YourTable::YourContainerField ; "$Path"]
Thanks for the help. It works great.
