    Questions about saving to pdf

    mabels

      I am creating a new database and I am saving a form to a pdf. Is it possible to save the pdf as one of the fields? In otherwards, one of the fields is the order number and I want the pdf name as [ordernumber.pdf]. Is that possible? If so, how do I do that?

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Yes. You can save a file without dialog by defining the file-path and file-name as a $variable in your script, and use the field value as part of the file name section.

           

          The trick is to define set the variable(s) required in the script and then have it execute to the pre-set file path without any user dialog. Suppressing the use dialog allows defining the file name/path in the script.
