Does anyone have any ideas???
"So is any of this doable?"
"is there a way to make sentry file print the selected records and the corisponding pdf file?"
sentry file? What's that? a typo perhaps?
You can certainly print a layout listing the records that make up the current found set and you can print the PDF once you open it.
Yes that was a typo...to many things going on at once!
Can FILEMAKER print the corisponding attached pdfs? i know i could open each one and print it, but looking for an automated way that will print a bunch of them. The thought would be to print the list out if we had a fire or tornado and lost everthing...reprint all of our documents for insurance.
thanks, and sorry for the mistake!
If it is a single page PDF, then you can display this page in a web viewer sized to be large enough to display the entire page. Then you can print it.
Here's a link that discusses this method (check out TSGal's example for how to do this.)
There may be more effective ways to do this with a plug in.
An interesting question to consider: If you've lost the originals, but still have the PDF's, why would you want to reprint and re-file all that hard copy? Wouldn't it be simpler just to keep them as PDF's at that point?
