    Auto insert a file name,

    davidallen

      I would like to be able to click a button and have FM save a file as a pdf

      and name it based on data in a field.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

          For the script attached to the button do something like the following

           

          Set Variable[$theFilePath; Value:"file:" & myTable::myField]

          Save Records as PDF["$theFilePath"; Records being browsed]

           

           

          Customize your calculation to assign the variable so that it goes into the folder you desire. The code above will put the file into the same folder as your FileMaker database file.
