Automatically save PDF copy of all printed reports to new container field

I need to print and distribute several periodic reports to our club members (weekly summary reports, monthly committee reports, quarterly detail reports, etc.). I have a script to automatically print the various reports via a "Perform Script" button, but now want to take it to the next level and automatically sve a copy of each report I print in a Report Archive TO within the database.


The only way I can figure out how to do this so far is to save a pdf to the desktop (or wherever on the Hard Drive) and then re-import it back into FM12. I know that there is a much better way to do all of this internally within FM, but am stumped as to how.


Any help/comment/consideration on this would be greatly appreciated. I'm your basic noob, so please add as much detail as you can - I like to learn the 'why' as well as the 'how'.


Best Regards,
