Default Static text not bring recognized in OnNewOutputFile

I have the following code in which I'm attempting to name the output file as "internal job number" + "client's csv file name" + ".pdf" extension.

And for some reason the result is just the "client's csv file name + the .pdf extension – disregarding the static text prefix.

Is this a known issue with 7.2? I have had success doing this in the past before upgrading. Any ideas?

Code:
var input = FusionPro.Composition.inputFileName;
var file = input.split(".");
FusionPro.Composition.outputFileName = "143340-1_" + file[0] + ".pdf";

FusionPro.Composition.inputFileName returns the full path of the input file, which starts with a slash on Mac. You're effectively telling it to look for a file like "143340-1_/some path on your Mac/filename.pdf", which of course doesn't exist. So it ignores the path and just uses the file name. You want to use the GetFileName function to strip off the path, like so:
Code:
var input = GetFileName(FusionPro.Composition.inputFileName);
Also, the way you're removing the extension from the file name won't properly handle the case where the name contains more than one dot (like "joe.smith.txt"). You can use the ReplaceFileExtension function instead to handle this. So the rule then becomes:
Code:
FusionPro.Composition.outputFileName = "143340-1_" +
    ReplaceFileExtension(GetFileName(FusionPro.Composition.inputFileName), "pdf");

I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally.

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)});
