    I am creating a monthly PDF and will begin using Automator for this. I have tested it and seems to do what I need. However, I would like to be able to rename the file with a month in front of the generic name (eg October FileName.pdf) automatically, if possible. I see that it offers a date stamp but would prefer just the month.

    Certainly this is not a pain-staking task to do manually, but I hope to learn from this. Maybe I can run a script or something. Obviously I am very new to this and appreciate any advice.

    I'm not much of an Automator user, but in AppleScript you can say "get the month of the current date" to get the...er, month of the current date (shocker! ;) ). I know that Automator lets you execute AppleScripts and integrate them into your workflows, so maybe this can help you.
