      Exporting PDF's from Filemaker GO 13

      Post

           Hello!

           I want to create a single PDF from 2 layouts that are pulling from 2 related tables. The first layout has information about a report and the second layout has a list of all the corresponding photographs.

           Here are the steps for my script so far:

           1. Go to Related Record on Layout A

           2. Save Records as PDF (Restore; No dialog; Current record)

           3. Set a temporary variable for searching purposes

           4. Goto Photo layout

           5. Perform Find using temporary variable

           6. Save Records as PDF (Restore; Append; No dialog; Records being browsed)

           7. Return to original layout

            

           So when I run this script, FileMaker Go creates 2 separate PDF's. When I run it on the desktop, FileMaker allows me to select the PDF to append to (even though I selected No Dialog).

           Part of my problem (I think) is that I don't know how to specify the PDF location that I want to have the 2nd layout PDF be appended to. What should I be using as a temporary path on FileMaker go?

           Thanks,
