    Save as PDF to Server location


      Hi all -


      I am still working with getting pdf's saved to my server directly from Filemaker and I am having some issues - here is the breakdown of what I have:


      Where I host filemaker:

      Filemaker 13 Server

      Windows Server 2008 R2


      Where I would like to save my PDFs

      Windows Server 2012


      What My user's look like

      Mac Users w/ Filemaker Pro 13 Advance

      Windows XP Users w/ Filemaker Pro 13

      WIndows 7 Users w/ Filemaker Pro 13


      What I am looking to do is as a user activates a script I want it to print a form and automaically save it as a PDF and put it in a folder on my Windows 2012 Server. What I have now is I set a variable $Filename as:


      Let ([

      MAC = "filemac:/ServerName/Sales/Invoices/INV/";

      PC = "filewin:/ServerName/Sales/Invoices/INV/"

      ]; & Invoice Number & "_" & Company Name



      I then perform a Save As PDF with the Output File as $FileName


      When I run this script I get an error saying "Could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk."


      My backup option would be to have the filename populate automatically and have the user select the location.


      any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
