WebDirect renaming extracted pdf object file before download

For "WebDirect" the only way I know of downloading a pdf report automatictly,  without requiring end user confirmation before download, is to run a server based script and attach the PDF file to an object field object, and then extract the file from the object.

 

However, the resulting file name that is generated by FileMaker is a ludicrously long numbered filename.

 

Is there any way for a script to specify a pre-specified filename when extracting the file before it is saved?
