I'm hosting a database via FMS12 and I need to save some files as pdf, to be later sent via email and/or consulting.
I need these files to be accessible from all client users and I was wondering how to achieve this.
Pdf format is mandatory for me, how can I get the correct filepath to save a pdf on the server machine?
I read there are some issues on this topic, can you help me please? I'm open to other solutions..is this achievable with container fields?
Thank you very much!
Here's a demo done a while ago in FM11 to illustrate emailing a PDF, but should give you the tools to recreate in FM12. Again, saving a PDF of a record is not something you need, imho. Just run another PDF when you need it. What if the record has changed? The existing PDF will not represent the latest version of the record, and that is why I don't recommend it.
