  1. Hi I am still getting this error, even though the plugin is in the correct place (newer version). It was working and now it has stopped.
  2. Thanks CT I've run out of time for the next day or two but I'll do as you suggest and report back. Thanks again for all the help thus far. Duncan Yahooo!!!!! Just before I signed off I thought I'd take a look at the PCPF demo file. I saw there that the file path is prefixed /Volumes i.e /Volumes/Macintosh HD/......... This change allows me to save the files in both my Documents and Box Sync directory. Thank you so very much for sticking with me to sort this out. I very much appreciate it! Duncan
  3. That is great, thank you. I am sure both of those would work very well. Unfortunately I am still getting the error: The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder. I am pretty sure this is nothing to do with Filemaker but it is preventing me from saving via the script step. I can manually save each file but this is pretty tedious and not really practical in the long run. I know there are problems when files are stored in synced folders, such as Dropbox or Box but I am getting the same problem when attempting to save to my Documents folder. Do you have any ideas here, or do I need to dig elsewhere? So many thanks Duncan
  4. Hi Thanks so much. That could be very useful, indeed. May I trouble you a little further, please? How do I "trim" the leading / before passing it to PCPF_SaveAsPDF? Also, if the actual storage directory is not in Documents but elsewhere (for instance /Users/adgilcan/Box Sync/PSRB&H4FA/Applications/Navy Applications), how is that entered into the filePath variable? At present, using your suggestion, I am getting the Acrobat error dialogue: The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder. I am assuming that this is because of an error in the filePath variable? Very many thanks Duncan
  5. I am populating a series of a application forms from the FM database and saving each one to a specified directory with each application form name appended with the name of the applicant (PCPF_SetPDFFieldValue( "VeteranName" ; Veterans::VeteranName )) along with their identification number (PCPF_SetPDFFieldValue( "pkID" ; Veterans::__pkVeteransID )). My question is how does one use Set Field[ Main::Result ; PCPF_SaveAsPDF ( “Some other PDF file path” ) ] script step to save the file as a name based on the previous two field values. For instance if VeteranName = John Doe and the pkID = 100 and the saved directory path is Macintosh HD/Users/Robert/Documents/Database how do you combine those attributes to create a Full Path File Name? i.e I need the file to be stored as: Macintosh HD/Users/Robert/Documents/Database/pk100 John Doe Application Form.pdf Or is there a better way to do it? Many thanks for your help Duncan
