When scripting the saving of records as PDF you can specify the output file as a script variable.

So before the Save Record As PDF step put a Set Variable step and set that variable, $path in this example, to the path of the PDF including the name.

For example, "filewin:/C:/" & name_Record

Then type "$path" into the Specify Output File dialog box in the Save Record As PDF step.

I am unfamiliar with the syntax you used(file://c:/). What is the significance of using that syntax?

I am familiar with "filewin://" syntax for specifying a path to a Windows share, but would be very interested in what your syntax does.
