Illustrator Action or Script for saving

Hello everyone, I have a problem and I cant find a solution online (english is not my main language)


So basically I want to make an Action or a Script that saves the file for me, one in an Editable PDF and other with password protected. I tried to make an action but the problem with that is that it saves over it self and it goes all to the same folder.



I open a file from a folder called "Example 1" and I make my alterations and I click in my save Action and I want the Action to do the following

- Save the document as PDF with the same name and same folder

- Restarize all the document

- Save the document (Restarized) as PDF with password for editing (like an save preset) and with "wr_" and the rest of the document name, in the same folder as the other so they will be on one place.

(I cant do the naming automatically part)

but then I want to open another file from folder "Example2" and run the action and it saves on folder "Example 1" not on the "Example2" folder where the document is.


Is there any way to make the "Save As" in the same location?


I'm sorry if is confusing
