We have crystal report which generate Invoice for our clients, crystal report's  name is invoice.rpt.  When crystal report is created and print to PDF file, the default pdf file name is invoice.pdf.
is there a way to change the pdf name to the invoice number (which is a variable inside crystal report)?
for example, we open inovice.rpt to create a invoice 10000, can we print to pdf file and name set to 1000 by default, instead of invoice.pdf?
thanks.
