To save a file to a specific location using a specific name requires using a script that's installed on the local machine of each user.
Is this possible in your case?
Thanks for the quick responses. I've been staring at that page until the words start to blur.. O.o
I suppose it's possible to have a script installed on the local machine - the form is purely to submit absence forms, so there would be a limited number of people using it. What would the script entail?
Are you running a web server on your local computer? That would be required to submit to "localhost". Then, once you have a web server, you will then need to create a script/program/page that can handle a PDF form submission.
If you don't know what that all means, you may want to consider submitting the form data via email.
I know what all of those words mean!
However, I doubt I'd be able to persuade the client to install a web server on each client..
I'll see if we can guide them down the path of submitting via email.
Thanks for the guidance, really appreciated.
Sorry, I got two different questions confused. Please disregard my previous reply. Yes, you would only have to install a script on every machine, and that would allow you to then write to the location on your server. It' pretty simple to do when you follow the steps in the tutorial.
You misunderstood. The web-service only needs to be installed on one machine (your web-server).
That's probably the more complex solution of all three. Using a script to save the files or using email is much easier to set up.
