# SSRS email subscription with custom file name on the attachment

I would like to set up an SSRS email subscription that attaches the report in PDF format to the email with a custom file name that changes daily. I was hopeful that I could to this via a data-driven subscription, but that does not seem possible. Does anyone have a handy work-around for this limitation?

UPDATE: @swasheck provided a decent work-around, and one that we currently use. But I am hoping to remove the step of saving to a file-share.

• How are you creating the PDF? SSIS expressions might be an option for you, but let's hear about how the PDF originates. – Eric Higgins May 29 '12 at 16:06
• Not very exciting - just by rending the report as PDF as defined in the subscription. – JHFB May 29 '12 at 16:12

2. Specify Windows File Share as the delivery method (this would imply that you had a file share location available)
