FileMaker Go Save as Snapshot not working

I have a script in FileMaker that works fine on the Desktops but not on the iPhones and I'm stumped. The Desktops are Macs using FM 13 and the iPhone uses the latest version of FM Go.


Basically the script saves the current record as a snapshot and is attached to an email that is sent via SMTP.


The part that creates the snapshot looks like this


Set Variable [$snapshot; Value: Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "expensereport.fmpsl"]

Save Records as Snapshot Link ["$snapshot"; Current record]

then I use a Send Mail [Send via SMTP Server.......]

then I add the attachment to the email by using $snapshot in the File Path List


The Desktop and the iPhone are using the same script. I've researched to see if it was compatibility problem but from what I can tell it should work just fine. But the iPhone is either not creating the snapshot or creating it but not attaching it to the email.


Any suggestions?
