Topic: Populating Form Data into PDF on Mac OS (Via Email)
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 143909

I've developed a Leave Request App in ColdFusion that takes input from
the user in regard to the request for leave and then upon submission of
the ColdFusion form, calls another page that dumps the info into a DB
and then populates a PDF for printing. What I am having trouble with is
that for our machines running the Mac OS it does the dump of data into
the DB properly, but then it will not create the PDF but rather
downloads a copy of what was processed in the code.

My question is, what do I need to change the CFCONTENT TYPE (and/or
other portions of the initial CFOUTPUT line) to in order to make this
work?

Thank you for your time.
