Naming PDF and XML files on submit

Avatar

Level 2

I have my form set up to do a Save As to allow the user to save the file locally, and then attach an XML file to a Lotus Notes e-mail. It all works fine, except that both file names have generated names such as _7g18f5q3df6dbt11g.pdf. Is there a way to give these both a "correct" file name. Such as the name of the form?

Thanks

The saved XML file will take the name from the PDF that it is saving from. My guess is that you are running from Preview and in that case a temporary PDF is created and that is the name that you are getting. Once you save it as a normal file then it will use that name.

That was it, I was running it from the preview when I was getting that. Thank you Paul.
