Hi holiday676,

Thanks for the post - Based on your description, we're not entirely sure whether or not this can be done at the moment. Can you provide a concrete, step-by-step example so that we can look further into this and say for sure?

Cheers,

Hi holiday676,

Thanks for that - This wouldn't be possible to do when the document opens or after it sends, at least not if you're trying to change the filename. The best solution I can think of would be something like this:
viewtopic.php?f=62&t=32260

Would that work for you?

Thanks,

Hello holiday676,

Can you please explain the whole use case in a bit more detail!
Are the files already generated (e.g. you have a bunch of PDFs and want to count them)?
Or is it that you need to create some files, and want them to be named accordingly?
I believe that both of the above operations are more of file system related than they are to our tools, but if you do give us a bit more detail - we will see if anything can be done with our products to assist you with this!

Regards,
Stefan
