Default OpenNewOutputFile and VDP Producer

The following expression works as expected when I compose without using the Scheduler.
if (FieldChanged("MyField"))
The result is 1 pdf for every variation in the MyField column of my data. In this case, there are 10. I get 1.pdf, 2.pdf, and so on.

However, when I select the "Use FusionPro Producer on Scheduler" option in Composition settings, only the last pdf is generated, 10.pdf.

I am wondering if I need to modify the code, or if I am overlooking an option in composition settings to make this work properly when composing on the server.

I am using FusionPro VDP Producer 9.2.3 on a Windows 7 PC.

I'm pretty sure that all of the output files are generated. It's just that the View Output button downloads only one of them. The other files are there, in the Working Folder set up for Producer.

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.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Thanks Dan, you are the best. All of the files were in the Working directory like you said. I always retrieve files from the Printer Hot Folder, so I did not even think to look there.
