Default Output multiple pdf files using a variable field to name each fi

I need to output multiple pdf files (1 per record) using a variable field to name each output file.
ie. variable field "CustomerID = 2233, 2311, 5547"
File output names = 2233.pdf, 2311.pdf, 5547.pdf

Is there a rule to make this work.
Thanks,

On the Output tab of the Composition Settings dialog, check the "Output to multiple files" box and set the "Number of records per file" count to 1. (Also UNcheck the "Different number of records in first file" box.)

Then, from the Rules dialog, click "New", then click "Callback" and select "OnNewOutputFile" and click "Next." Paste this code into the Rule Editor for the OnNewOutputFile callback:
Code:
FusionPro.Composition.outputFileName = Field("CustomerID")+".pdf";

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.

Can this be acheived using the fusionpro.exe command line?
fusionpro.exe <instance file> <format (the .dif) file> <config file> <output file>

where <output file> is variable based on the rule.
