Summary

Save as PDF works in local file, hosted, file is created properly but won't attach to email

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

12

Operating system version

ios

Description of the issue

I have a local file that I have a report creation script that saves records as a pdf, then creates an email, attaches the pdf. Works fine on local file, but as soon as I login to file when it's hosted/shared the pdf file will not attach. Email comes up with text but no attached file. The pdf is created, because I see it in my files list, it simply does not attach. I currently use the following as the file path:

file:InspectorGOResidential.pdf

Is there a better prefix or file path option needed. I will strictly being using this application on the ipad and iphone.

Steps to reproduce the problem

open filemaker go
connect to shared file InspectorGO
go to inspection record
click on button to run script
script generates pdf, does not attach to email, but does follow script path and inserts the file into a container field

Expected result

open filemaker go
connect to shared file InspectorGO
go to inspection record
click on button to run script
script generates pdf, pdf file attaches to email.

Actual result

file does not attach to email
