PDF FILE NAME

Hello and thank you in advance for your help.

What I need to perform via a script is generating a PDF from a single found record and up to here I'm fine.

1) I would like the name of the generated PDF file to be the content of a specific field (PONUMBER).

This Purchase Order Number is a unique increasing value for each generated records/pdfs.

2) Subsequently I would like to mail the newly generated PDF to the email address of the recipient of the P.O. (the email address field is also part of the record and of the generated pdf).

Can this be done ?

N.B.: While testing I've noticed that the PDF generated directly from FMP and the one generated via the Print dialog box create two different PDFs, the latter lets me click on the email address and automatically creates an e-mail with the address, while the former does not.

Any one can tell me why ?

TIA

With a little bit of research in the FM Forums archives I've found the solution thanks to
