               Save As PDF is not server side script compatible. Why do you need to save it on the server? That will tell me if another approach might be practical.

                 We have uploaded to a remote server 13 flat form. Some users will use this file via web direct. We would need to be able to email as attachment thru SEND EMAIL via smtp server  set up. (the remote user via web will not have a email client on their device).

                 Can you please suggest a solution.

                   Save As PDF is also not WebDirect compatible.

                   The only option that might work that I can think of is a bit complex. If you set up a script that logs the needed criteria for your PDF (ClientID = 324, StartDate = 1/1/2014, enddate = 1/30/2014...) and the needed email address in a table of such "requests", a FileMaker Client could check that table for unprocessed requests on a regular interval. (Install OnTimer script might be used.) When the FileMaker client detects a new record in this "Request" table, it uses the data entered in that record to save and send the PDF.
