PRB: ZSubmit Attach Command Deletes file after sending the Fax



ID: ZTN1564

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax 2006 and later


When you attach a file using the “Attach:” command while trying to send a fax using ZSubmit the attached file gets deleted from the source location.


The “Attach:” command will attach files from the user’s private Z-GRAPH directory or the system Z-GRAPH directory, without deleting them.  When a path is used with the “Attach:” command, the file will get deleted.


1)        Use the %%[File] command instead of the “Attach:” command.

For example,

(filename, including path)

2)        Alternatively, place the attached file in a Z-GRAPH directory and use the “Attach:” command without a path.

To do this, use the “Attach:” command like this:

      Attach: BOOKS.G3F

This must be used without a path.  If you include a path, the file will get deleted.


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.
