    Default Specifying the Name of a PDF attachment

    Does anyone know of a way to accomplish the following:
    I have a quote form set up with a button that prints a report in PDF format and attaches it to an e-mail using the A5 e-mail client. Before this feature was available, we would use PDFwriter to write the PDF to file and then manually create an e-mail and attach the file. The problem is that we named the PDF based on the quote. The file name included the quote "name+quote #+date.pdf". Is there any way to do this with code instead of the way it is currently being handled by A5 which is to take the report name and continue to add an incremental # to the end?

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Look at the Report.SaveAs() function. You can provide a filename for it.
