Wrting Pdf to network problems


We host filemaker 11 using a hosted solution from Rapid Host


I have a script that creates a work response form and saves it in pdf format to our local server directory.

The creator of the file can run this script and overwrite the pdf file as intended; however, nobody else can run this script to overwrite the pdf.


In fact nobody else can see the pdf through explorer.


We do not have the same problem saving an excel file, or saving a pdf from word


It appears that the pdf is not being closed off correctly by FileMaker, because if we move the file to another server directory it becomes available to everyone
