I am successfully able to take the low res file and send it to an email address with blat using these parameters
-attach "$FFin$" -to XXX.XXXXX@XXXXXXXXXX.com -subject "blat test" -body "this is my message" -server XXX.XX.X.X -f XXX.XXXXX@XXXXXXXXXX.com
But the file that is attached to the email is names "temp.pdf" which is not the filename, does anybody know why that would be?
When a job is processed through the workflow, the filename at time it finishes a node is “temp.pdf”. I assume you are using an external node to initiate the blat processing. You could add as a variable in the External node $FFwfjob.jobName$ or perhaps $FFwfDoc.inputFileName$ and then copy the file from $FFin$ and rename it based on $FFwfjob.jobName$.pdf.
ive tried adding a few different variables , but anything i add to the external node other than wjhats there at the moment ends in a fail on the freeflow file queue, could i get a little more info on how these variables should be strung together, i feel im missing something
A possibility is $FFin$ is being renamed in the external node. It needs to remain temp.pdf. You want to copy $FFin$ and then rename the copy -- leaving $FFin$'s name alone.
