Title

deleting temporary pdf files

Post

     It seems to me that the only way to email a report is to print it as a pdf file and attach it to an email. This operation is going to clatter the computer with many temporary files. Is there a way to add some steps to the script to delete those files after emailing them.

     I hope there is a filemaker native delete file command because I prefer not to have to do it using send event.

     If I have to use send event, I need to know how can I do this on a MAC. I know how to do it on windows although it is a pain because different versions of windows seem to be sensitive to the forward slash and back slash.
