      Summary

      Dynamically Naming a PDF and sending it by e-mail (also dynamically)

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11

      Operating system version

      windows xp

      Description of the issue

      I want to create a pdf file, save it, name it and attach it to an email where the "to" is the "emailaddress" field of this record, and where I can include a standard subject and text as I usually do with the "send mail" (invia posta) function

      I have managed to create a script to save a Record as a PDF via a script, name the resulting PDF from a field within my file and attach it to a new email. (and I feel very proud ...)How do I automatically send this email to my "emailaddress" field?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      This is my script to create the email with the attached named pdf

      Set Variable ("filewin:"& Get ( PercorsoDesktop )  & Fatture::ft_cognome  & ".pdf")
      Save Records as PDF [Restore; No dialog; "$filePath"; Current record]

      and this is where I stop ...

      Expected result

      solve this problem! THANK YOU!!!
