      using a date in a filename...

      Post

      Hello all,

      I've created a variable to make a file name for a PDF created in FM to then send out to a group of folks via email in a script.  I would like to use the date in the filename, but it appears that "/" aren't allowed in filenames.  The file is a report over a period of days so I am trying to identify it is as such.  Any ideas?

      This is the current variable.

      "file:" & Get (DesktopPath) & "FS Rpt ending //" & ".pdf"

      It returns an error message stating 

      “.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.

      Here's another iteration:

      "file:" & Get (DesktopPath) & "FS Rpt ending" & Get (CurrentDate) & ".pdf"

      Here's that error:

      “2011.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.
