Title

Save PDF on server direct, not network share.

Your post

Hi i have a issue,

I have the script below which creates a pdf and saves on the network shared location athen attaches to a email and sends.

 

my problem is not that when im outside of the network on my laptop or ipad that the shared folder is no longer available.

 

I would like to keep the copy on the server if possible but thats not too essential.

 

How would i change the script so it is either processed by the server and saved internally or its temporary saved on the pc / ipad white it emails then deletes afterwards.

 

any assistance is appreciated.

 

thanks

 

Also ive just upgraded to fmp 12 and fms12
