    Append PDF script step is not appending

    Stu412

      Hi there

       

      I'm looking to create one PDF from two reports which run from two layouts.  The first layout contains a result set, the second layout contains a selection of narrations.  I need these in one PDF.

       

      Currently, I am using save to PDF in a script to create PDFs for the first layout and this works great. 

       

      I took a look at the save to PDF step and saw the Append to existing and thought, hey presto - here we go.  However, there's no appending going on.  Despite this step being selected to run without dialog, a dialog box still appears and I'm being prompted to enter a second file name for the second report.

       

      What I want to happen is:

       

      Click button, run script

      Find and sort

      Enter preview mode

      Save to PDF

      Enter filename

      Enter browse mode

       

      Goto next layout

      Find and sort

      Enter preview mode

      Append to what I just saved

      Enter browse mode

      Return

       

      Not sure how to make this one happen.

       

      Thanks in advance
