Title

Script making PDF and naming it according to the record

Post

I followed these instructions for making and dynamically naming a PDF from a record:

 

http://filemaker.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/filemaker.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7013&p_created=1224110348&p_sid=NddCaEUj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9OTcsOTcmcF9wcm9kcz04NjQmcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PTEuODY0JnBfY3Y9JnBfcHNfYW5zX3VwZGF0ZWQ9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9UERG&p_li=&p_topview=1

 

When I do this verbatim (using my info), it appears that the file is being made but it is saved no where (I did a search). Now, when I don't use $filePath, I enter where I want it to be saved, it does save there, but not with the title. If I put in "output file. specify" the path and no file name, I get an error message when trying to run the script:

 

"Song Lyric PDFs could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, etc."

 

 I've also tried filemac. Do I use this Get (DesktopPath) or am I supposed to fill that in with something?

 

Thanks!
