I got such a fast responce to my last post re calculating applescript I have now moved onto my next problem which must have been solved many times before but i cant find any referance to it.

I want to be able to calculate the name i save a file as e.g I want to send a personalised fax to a list of my clients, I also want to be able to refer to this fax at a later date so i need to save it with a filename of clientname-todaysdate.

Any ideas :???

If you're on 8 you can use Set Variable, which is in the Control section of the script steps. Put the entire file path into a named variable, ie., $FileExport, then type that into the file path for Save As PDF (or Export) (no quotes are needed). The below is a relative path. Say you had a field named "Name":

Let (

D = Get ( CurrentDate );

Get (DesktopPath) &

ExportwDate::Name & "_" & Right (Year (D); 2) & "-" & Right ( "0" & Month(D); 2) & "-" & Right ( "0" & Day(D); 2) & ".pdf"

)

ExportwDate.zip
