So, you're submitting the job to another machine via Producer or Server? That's certainly relevant.

More questions:
  1. To exactly what system are you submitting the job? Is it Producer (via the "Use FusionPro Producer" check box in the Composition Settings)? Or to some other system using FP Server?
  2. What happens if you compose the job locally, directly from FP Creator in Acrobat? Does the output go where you expect?
  3. What is the version of FusionPro on the composition server? You can simply open the output in Acrobat and select File -> Properties, and it will tell you the version of FusionPro used to make the PDF. You should also be able to access the composition log file. (There's a View Log button in the Producer Monitor app.)

FP Producer (or Server, or whatever PTI is calling it these days) puts all of its output in a specified "Output" folder; that's what I'm referring to.
Thanks, but I need you to be even more specific than that. If you're using Producer, there's no "specified" or "regular" output folder, but there are some specific paths that get set in the Producer Configuration app. There's the Working Folder where all jobs go, but you don't usually see that.

There may also be a "Printer Hot Folder" set up in the Producer Configuration. If that's the case, then ALL output files get COPIED to this hot folder, regardless of where they're written, and also regardless of whether the output is redirected with JavaScript.

So, I'll bet that you have a Printer Hot Folder set up in Producer, and that all your output is being copied there. That's by design.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
