On a prior EE suggestion, I an using Bullzip to create PDF files.

Bullzip allows a user specified filename by using an environment variable.

I am trying to set up an environment variable with the run command. . .

RUN set pdfname=c:\pdfs\clientname

This works fine from the OS command window but NOT from the VFP command window.

I don't get any errors, but           ? GETENV('pdfname')             displays nothing
