Strange behavior of SaveAs() function

Hello, all

I am having the strangest issue with SaveAs(PDF!, true) function for data store.

When application is run normally, in the user session, the function works correctly.

However, when the application is launched in batch mode from SQL Anywhere DB server (using xp_cmdshell command) it returns -1.

What am I missing here ?

Thank you

    My guess would be permissions, the SQL Anywhere DB will be running as a specific user and may not have permission to either run ghostscript or the folders where you are trying to save the PDF.
