As far as I can tell, this should work. Make sure that the file name does not contain a full path. It should be just a file name with the .pdf extension.
You should also try to run the PDF2.fwx sample script (if you want you can try it on our servers). Does the file name get set properly with that one? You should end up with a long name consisting of a hexadecimal number (numbers and letters from a to f) and a .pdf extension.

Thanks for the response.  I gave your suggestion a shot and it didn't seem to make a difference.  Here is the code:

lccucstomer = REQUEST.QUERYSTRING("customer")
lccase_no = REQUEST.QUERYSTRING("case_no")
Set CLASSLIB to "Z:\G Drive\Projects\Help Desk\Class Libraries\Help Desk.vcx" additive
orpt_customerlist = createobject("rpt_ticket")
orpt_customerlist.nDirection = 7
orpt_customerlist.lccompany = lccucstomer
orpt_customerlist.lccase_no = lccase_no
Response.Buffer = .T.
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + FileName)
Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", Server.ToString(LEN(FileContent)))
Response.ContentType = ContentType

The code creates a file on the server named:  Ticket Report.pdf

When I go to save the file or email it from within Adobe Acrobat, it always include the script name in the file name. 

Also, I am running version 3.51 which did not come with the PDF examples.

Any further thoughts????

Thanks very much,

Dave Martin

 Yes there is. You will need to send a Content-Disposition HTTP header:
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=" + FileName)
Note that instead of "inline" you can specify "attachment". Inline instructs the browser to display the PDF file inside the browser window, while attachment allows you to view the document in a separate Adobe Acrobat window.
For a detailed example please refer to the PDF2.fwx sample script that comes with FoxWeb.

I have been successfully outputting reports to various browsers via PDF files for some time.  When utilizing IE8 and Adobe Acrobat, if I click the email button from within the browser, Acrobat gives the PDF attachement a file name something like the following:

"script file name".fwx.pdf

Where the script file name should be replaced with the name of the Foxweb script which was generated the PDF file.

Is there a way to add some header information to the PDF file such that it will have the correct file name?
