    Very nice document, which made my life easy when performing this task, thanks! Small note: do not use field TDCOVTITLE for the mail subject, but TDTITLE.

  2. This's good to reference to implement this function~

    One question: can we make PDF file name vs. email subject are different? from BTE 1040 they are assigned by ITCPO-TDTITLE.
