Error Capture Script and Bypassing Filemaker Errors

Post

For this application, I use Filemaker Pro Advanced to store my database of scientific literature.  Every record has a container field that contains the PDF of the article.  I have created a script for my button that uses ExportFieldContents with automatically open, and gives it a name "test.pdf".  However, I need to close that file before opening another or I get a Filemaker error message: "test.pdf" could not be created on the disk....  That's because the file it is trying to save to is open.  To get around this problem, I wanted to modify my script with an "if" statement that would use ErrorCapture and GetLastError.  I would then say, if this file is used, use Test1.pdf etc.  However, as soon as the script gets to the line with ExportFieldContents the error I mentioned pops up, without ever getting to the next line in the code.  Is there any way around this?
