I am working on creating PDF invoice packages using a combination of FM generated reports and PDF's of invoices that I have saved in an interactive container field. I have been able to create the package I need (see note below) with single-page invoices using Save Records as PDF [Restore ; Append ; With Dialog: Off ; $DeskTopPath ; current record ]. However, when the PDF'd invoice is a multi-page document, I cannot save more than the first page of that invoice to the combined PDF file. My input container field holding invoices is set to interactive and I can view the full invoice - all pages - on-screen. (I am inserting the invoice into the database, ie not using file path)
Am I doing something wrong or is Filemaker unable to export multi-page PDF documents? I have read several discussions have had this same problem but am not sure there was a resolution. I would appreciate any help in fixing this, whether it's an explanation of how to do it in Filemaker, or what external software / plug-ins can be used.
NOTE: Thru a script I am creating a cover memo, a summary of the contract invoicing, and a cumulative detail report out of Filemaker that precede the invoice or invoices. The invoices are received in our office in PDF format from vendors - we have no control over that.
