use a variable:
$file = "filmac:" & Get ( DocumentsPath ) & "2013_invoice/" & table::invoice_number
and put the valiable in the "specify output file" box
If you use "file:" instead of "filemac:" (note typo in previous post), you have an expression that works equally well on mac and windows platforms.
Thanks so much, you guys... but you're assuming that I have any clue what to do with that info! HAHAHA! I'm flattered that you think I might be on par with the geniuses on this forum.
How do I set that variable (do i set the button to perform script, or is that supposed to go somewhere in the SAVE AS PDF dialog?)
Also, is that script verbatim or do I need to replace ( DocumentsPath ) with /Users/karenlenz/Documents/2013_invoices/ ?
Sorry I'm self-taught and a bit of a noob.
get ( DocumentsPath ) is a functioun that returns the correct file path to the documents folder for the current user's computer. It works for both Mac and windows systems. There are several other get functions that specify "standard" locations such as the user's desktop.
