PDF creation time delay for emailing

Hello all,

 

I've got a minor niggle/problem with one of the Filemaker solutions I'm currently using. I've created a script within a button for saving the form to PDF and attaching it to an email for sending to the office.

 

The problem I'm having is that occasionally the PDF doesn't attach to the email, it looks as if the email opens before the PDF has been created, this can be partially solved by cancelling the email and pressing the button again (sometimes this has to be done 3/4 times before the PDF attaches)

 

Is there any way of adding a time delay between the creation of the PDF and the creation of the email? I'm hoping that if I can have a couple of seconds before the email opens it will prevent this from happening. I'm pretty much new to the whole Filemaker system but I've managed to get my head around most of the basics and have a system that suits me but can't seem to find any clues as to whether this 'delay' is possible or not.
