I have FileMaker Pro 6 and MAC OS 10.3.2

I have a database and would like to create a script, which would do the following:

Go to a Layout in Preview mode

Create a PDF file of that layout adopting a filename from a field,

save it into a predefined directory and then E-mail that PDF file adopting the e-mail address from another field.

Any Suggestions?

FileMaker Version: 6

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

Everything except dynamically naming a file with field contents can be done in scriptmaker. You could use an applescript to change the filename after you create the pdf, but then you wouldn't be able to use the send mail script step to send the file, since you can't dynamically name attachments. If you use a constant name, you could send different attachments to each recipient by overwriting the previous file
