Is fName a valid file name? Does it end with ".pdf"?

Try it with a fixed file name:
Code:
fName = "Test.pdf"

Hi,

Since i have not access to upload excel, i will try explaining the requirements .

value in cell I8 = 123/45679/000

value in cell A11 = abcdecdghdh

value in cell H11 = EGLV130900062647

so the file name should be 123/45679/000 - abcdecdghdh - EGLV130900062647

<colgroup><col width="86"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>

<colgroup><col width="64"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
