    Email layout as pdf from Go 14

    JFWX5

      Hi,

       

      I would like to email a pdf of the current layout displayed in FM GO 14, to an email address contained in the record.

       

      How do I properly set up a script to do this?

       

      Thank you,

       

      John

          Thank you for your post.

           

          One sample script could be:

           

             Set Variable [ $filepath ; Value: "file:" & Get ( DocumentsPath ) & "test.pdf"

            Save Records as PDF [ Restore ; No dialog ; "$filepath" ; Current record ]

            Send Mail [ Send via E-mail client ; No dialog ; To: <email address field> ; attachment = "$filepath" ]

           

          -----

           

          In essence, we first set up a variable that will capture the filename and file path.  For this example, "test.pdf" is the example file.  You can name this anything you want, or include the file name in a field.  Then, export the layout with the current record to test.pdf.  Finally, send a mail to the email address contained in a field, and attach "test.pdf".

           

          Let me know if you need additional clarification.
