Saving records to a PDF into a server path
First post here so here goes!
I have a field, DOCSPATH, the value of which is a copy/paste of a server path.
For this example it's "\\SERVER\Documents\Folder"
My script sets the variable $docspath to equal the field DOCSPATH
When saving the records to a PDF I use the variable $docspath as the location to save to.
I keep getting a message saying "\\SERVER\Documents\Folder\filename.pdf" could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk.
There is enough space on the disk, the user has the appropriate privelages/etc but still it doesnt work.
When I try and save to the desktop path this works fine so I'm a bit stumped as to what's causing the issue when I add the server path into the equation.
I was initially thinking that the slashes were the wrong way round (as the filepath normally looks something like filewin:/c:/desktop /etc. but don't know if this would make any difference). If it does and this is the answer how do I change the slashes to the other directon in the script (as my DOCSPATH field is consistant throughout my DB and also opens explorer windows according to the path set - so I can't change it on that.
I've also tried having "filewin:/" & $docspath & "/filename.pdf" to the box but still get the same error message.
Anyone have any ideas!?
Thanks in advance...
