I have several detailed reports that I would like to export as a PDF file to send via email to colleagues. Can I do this in FM 6 or do I need to export the records to Word, format as needed and then save that document as a PDF file?

If FM 6 does't support exporting to PDF, do more recent versions? It may be worth it to upgrade.

Thanks,

Nicci

Since you're on a Mac, Save As PDF is built-in to the Print dialog. So you should be able to use that. If you want to do several in a script, then you'd need to either use AppleScript to rename each file after it was created, or, better, upgrade to FileMaker 8, which has a Save Records As PDF command, and the ability to use a script Variable to set the names dynamically. It's simpler.

The AppleScript rename method is pretty simple also. Unfortunately I don't have any .fp5 examples of it. I converted all mine; never going back :-]
