Cannot save form to local directory


Not applicable

I have a problem saving form to a local directory c:\temp. I am using write document service and the path pattern in Input field is set to C:\temp\filename.pdf. Document variable is a doc var where the form is being stored. What wrong am i doing in this. The form is not saved in the above location.

Try to put C:/temp/filename.pdf.

Java doesn't like "\" and I'm not sure if we replace them.

If not, then maybe your form variable is empty. Can you use a ReadDocument and point to a PDF to make sure the variables contains something.

also the form will be saved on the server,not on the machine from which you are running workbench(unless workbench and server are on the same box!)

Are you seeing any errors in the server log? Your inputs seem to be right.
