      PDF issues on FM Server

      Your post

      Hello FM Community.  I need your help!

      I've got a FM solution running on Server 13 and I have a client machine running FM Pro Advanced (called hereinafter the "drone") that does nothing but look for reports needing to be created.  What is supposed to happen is as follows:

             
      1. the drone executes a script every five seconds in which it searches for report requests
      2.      
      3. when the drone finds a new report-request record in the system, the drone goes to the appropriate report layout and saves the record(s) as a PDF
      4.      
      5. the drone then goes to the original report-request record and inserts the PDF file into a container
      6.      
      7. the drone flags the record as ready to be viewed

       

      The problem I'm having is that when the drone goes to the original report-request record and inserts the PDF into the container field there (step #3 above), the PDF file automatically opens in Acrobat.  The container object on the layout is NOT set to "Start playback immediately," so I don't know what is causing the PDF to launch.
