Hi all,

Hope somebody can help...

I'm trying to attach multiple PDFs in a send mail script. I'm defining two variables (one for each PDF) that store the path to each file respectivly. I then insert the variables into the attachment dialogue screen as so:

$$PDF_Path1

$$PDF_Path2

When the script runs it is only picking up the first file. What am I doing wrong?

Regards

Gab

You are doing nothing wrong. This is the operation of filemaker -- limited to one attachment only.

Option a)

Zip the files and send one archive

Option :

I'm not sure if this is valid but the mailto syntax executed through send event in windows - and i assume apple script in mac - is capable of directly creating a new email with multiple attachments(provided your email client can properly interpret it).

Similar to what Genx suggested, but a different tack; on a Mac you can use AppleScript and shell scripting to zip the files, then send the resulting file with FileMaker. Possibly similar on Windows. There may be timing issues, waiting for the file to be created, esp. with very large files.
