I'm having this weird issue saving documents.  I have about 50 .rtf documents that I need to convert, now If I open them in Adobe they will be automatically converted to .pdf, but whenever I use my javascript line to save them to my folder, they are saved as As34d1.tmp.pdf, I'm confused as to why it's doing that, I want to save the .rtf document I opened and converted as the same filename? Please assist, code below

this.saveAs({cPath: "/fileserver01/itshare/EDM/rtf/work/"+this.documentFileName+".pdf"});

Are you doing it as a part of an Action? If so, the files are temporary files until they are closed by the Action, so they don't have a "normal" file path at the moment you're running your script. If that's the case you will have to do it in two parts, I'm afraid.

First run an Action to convert the files to PDFs, and then another one to process those PDF files and save them in the desired location.

Alternatively, you can try editing the settings of the first Action and change the output folder to the one where you want the files to end up, and that might work on its own...
