Save Button Question

Avatar

Level 3

Hi guys

I have a form with text fields for a person's first and last name.

I would like to add a 'save as' button to the form, in which the document defaults to saving under the formula:

"Last_Name, First_Name"


I have attached the form.

Thank you

The only way to have the file saved as a different name is to have the user enter it in a file dialog.

You are not allowed to overwrite the name of a saved file with your own without th eusers knowledge...it is deemed a security risk.

See attached form.

Is this what you want?

Thank you for that.

However, I still need the button to launch the pop-up "Save As", such that clicking the button will allow the user to save the file.

The idea is to have this pop-up then default to saving under the name as given before, "Last_Name, First_Name"

Thank you
