Email pdf files from Remote on Filemaker Network not working
I am now able to email pdf files from my iMac that has the host FM files on it. I use the following generic functions I found on another discussion in my email script:
Set Variable [ $FileName ; Value: "Invoice.pdf" ]
Save Records as PDF [ Restore; No dialog ; "$FileName" ;Current record ]
Set Variable [ $PDFPath ; Value: Get (DocumentsPath) & $FileName ]
Send Mail [ Send via E-mail Client ; No dialog; To: "email@example.com" ; Subject: "Invoice" ; Message: "Test" ; "$FileName" ]
While testing, I am sending the pdf file to my own email address. Running the script from the Host FM file on my iMac & checking my mail on the iMac & macbook, all is well. The email is received with the attachment. I also get one of the pdf files (not all) in the folder where the FM file is located.
I then go to my macbookpro & open this database file on the Filemaker Network from the remote network. When I send a pdf file from the remote FM file, the email does NOT have the attachment.
The attachment seems to only work correctly from the host computer & not from the remote network file. Do you know what is happening? I don't understand the $PDFPath variable and had to use the $FileName in the Send Mail function to get the attachment to work in the host iMac computer. I assume I don't have configured right.
I have the host FM files on my iMac in a desktop folder called "Filemaker Files". Any help on how to configure the $PDFPath to get the pdf attachment to work from a Remote file?
