When using tabcmd export to export a view to PDF, the following error might occur:

*** 404  "Not Found"

Environment

Resolution

Ensure that the file path specified in tabcmd export does not contain the views directory or file extension. For example:
tabcmd export "/directory/workbook/sheet" -f "C:\tabcmd\directory\file.pdf"

Instead of:
tabcmd export "/views/directory/workbook/sheet.twb" -f "C:\tabcmd\directory\file.pdf"

Cause

The /views/ section of the URL is used with tabcmd get, but not tabcmd export.
