Rename WMF file for a single page report (Legacy)

Rename WMF file for a single page report (Legacy)

(OP)
Greetings all - I have a C6.1 Legacy app and would like to RENAME the WMF file for a single page report that is printing a single record only. I do not need to save this file and it can remain as a temp file and be removed as normal when the report is closed.

From the Print Preview it is being send to a 3rd party PDF Creator (Printer Driver) which works fine but I would like to have a different file name for each different single record printed so the PDF relates to the record in the format of CustName.PDF or CustNumber.PDF instead of the default.

I can not seem to be able to find a solution in the Help file or to date on the Internet.

RE: Rename WMF file for a single page report (Legacy)

(OP)
My question was a bit misleading. I see now it is the Job Name I want to change REPORT(jobname) not the WMF file name and if its of any help to anyone else I think I have found a solution.

Legacy embed 'After Opening the Report'. ie.
LOC:RptJobName=INV:CustName
REPORT{PROP:Text}=(LOC:RptJobName)
