I am currently using filemaker 10 and cannot seem to figure out how to set a Path variable to go to the following location:

 

"C:UsersUSERNAMEDesktop_MY_SCANSDocument.pdf"

 

Here's the path I currently have:

 

"" & Get ( DesktopPath ) & "_MY_SCANSDocument.pdf" & """

 

This currently returns the following when I try check the path:

 

" & Get ( DesktopPath ) & "_MY_SCANSDocument.pdf"

 

I thought the proper way to fix this would be:

 

"" & Get ( DesktopPath ) & "_MY_SCANSDocument.pdf" & """

 

However when I type this in it returns the following error before I can save the path:

The specified table cannot be found

 

I'm unsure what I'm doing wrong, but if someone could point me in the right direction I would very much appriciate it.
