Using Acrobat 9, I have convinced myself that commas confuse the innards of the doc.saveAs() function. For example, from the console, the following throws an error:
the error: "UnsupportedValueError: Value is unsupported. ===> Parameter cPath."
I am more than a little stunned. It's been more than 10 years since the major operating systems allowed commas in the path.
Am I overlooking something trivially obvious?
No, you're not missing anything.
Adobe have decided (why? no idea) that commas are not "safe characters" and so can't be included in the file path when using saveAs().
Idiotic? Yes, but there's nothing you can do about it except complain here: https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
Thanks for that link to the "wish forum".
I have reported failure to accept commas in the path as a bug.
I'll keep this question open for just a little longer.
Does anybody know of any tricky escape character sequences that might solve the problem? I have failed with "\," and various ideas for nested quotes.
