Problem Pdf Append
« on: October 03, 2014, 01:44:36 AM »
I have a script who does the next steps:

PCPF_OpenPDF(  $PathPdfA ) )
PCPF_AppendPDF( $PathPdfB )
PCPF_SaveAsPDF( $PathPdfAB )
PCPF_ClosePDF

I am trying to make a FileMaker combination from two pdf and I have some problems. Once I have the first PDF open and I want to include the second one, the FileMaker add whatever pdf open in my computer and not the one I chose. It means that the FileMaker recognice the last Adobe Profesional and not the one chose by me.

Can you help me with this matter.

Regards.


Pep

Hi PepSoft,

Have you taken a look at the scripting that we provide in our demo file? on the "Combine PDF File" tab of our demo, we map out the steps needed to Append one pdf to another. I suggest taking a look at our script and see what you are doing differently.

Off hand, I can tell you that the PCPF_AppendPDF is expecting a list of paths for multiple files. This is specified in our Function's guide - Page 6:
