1. Make a calc field = "PDF Export For" & Get ( CurrentDate )

2. In the 'Save records as PDF' script step.

Under the 'Specify output file' option you can name the file with your calc field and save it to a location of your choosing.

How do I name the file using the calc field I just created? All I see is "Output File Path List" and then pick a filename.

Use a script variable, e.g.:

Set Variable [ $myPath; Value:Get (DesktopPath) & "/" & MyTable::MyField & ".pdf" ]

Save Records as PDF [ File Name: “$myPath”; Records being browsed ]

It says it is an invalid Get Function. This is what I put in for the $myPath variable

Get (filewin:/C:/Folder/Folder/Folder) &"/" & MFSDItems::SavePDFfileTitle &".pdf"

Get (DesktopPath) is a valid function. If you want another location, try:

"filewin:/C:/Folder/Folder/Folder/" & MFSDItems::SavePDFfileTitle & ".pdf" 

Thanks...this works but now the PDF can't be created because my field MFSDItems::SavePDFfileTitle has a date in it (i.e. 2/17/2011)

I'm trying to create a calculation field that equals my date field with the intention to change the format. Is there a way to change the "/" to "-"?

A calculation like MFSDItems:date FormatChange(**-**-****)

Use a script variable, e.g.:

Set Variable [ $myPath; Value:Get (DesktopPath) & "/" & MyTable::MyField & ".pdf" ]

Save Records as PDF [ File Name: “$myPath”; Records being browsed ]

No calculation field is required.

The slash is not required; it is part of get( desktopPath).

Set Variable [ $myPath; Value:Get (DesktopPath) & MyTable::MyField & ".pdf" ]
