    Append PDF

      Dear Group,

       

      I'm trying to append to an existing pdf using the script step: Save records as pdf

       

      I have "append to existing pdf" checked

       

      In the specify output file I write $path

       

      $path is a variable : "filemac:" & Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "TEST" & ".pdf"

       

      The file is hosted on a Developer Filemaker 12 Server on my mac

       

      I get a message: your access privileges do not allow you to perform this action

       

      Has anyone a working exemple?

       

      Kind regard

       

      Xavier

          That error occurs when you don't have write access tithe directory where you're trying to save the file. I'd recommend coding the path to the local desktop. It'll work on either platform (other than filewin or filemac) and users have read/write access to their desktop.

           

          HTH,

            I had the option: "specify options checked" in my append pdf script.

            This option has to be unchecked as the options are defined at the creation of the pdf and can't be modified later.

             

            This solved my problem.

             

            Thanks
