[SOLVED] Field value as filename for Save as PDF

Post

Howdy,

I'm sure this is easy for the pros but after searching, reading and trying, I have not been able to do this:

Example:
Go to Layout ["Layout #4"]
Save Records As PDF [No dialog, "Contacts.pdf"; Records being browsed]
... where the "Contacts" portion of "Contacts.pdf" is derived from a field within the record(s) being saved.
I've tried variables, this, that and the other thing from the FMP Help files but no joy; I still have to specify the filename manually via the dialog (if "Perform without dialog" is checked, then it's always "untitled").
Cheers!
Lyle
