      script remote save record as pdf with auto naming and without auto saving path?

      Post

           Hi guys,

           I  work remote in a database which is located on a filemakerserver 12. I use a script to save records to pdf with absolute mac file path and automatical naming the pdf's on the basis of some fieldnames. This is working fine:

           Set Variable [$path; Value:"filemac:/MacHD/Users/username/Documents/foldername/" & "filename" & Groups::Groupname & ".pdf"
           Print Setup [Restore; No dialog]
           Save Records as PDF [Restore; No dialog; "$path"; Current record]


           Now a few co-workers want to share the same file. How can I change the script to still add the filename automatical, but let the user decide her/his savingpath. I've tried a lot, but don't get it and don't fully understand the path syntax. Also the platforms are mixed mac / windows.

           thankx in advance!
