Another possible explanation is that it attempts to "ON TABLE SAVE FILENAME 'C:\FOCUS\TEST.PDF' FORMAT PDF" and that "C:" is the C drive of the reporting server to which you do not have that kind of write access... Try allocating it to your C drive.

Sure, PCHOLD works, but only for loading files that the brwoser knows how to handle. And this will never result in a file on your local disk, it will only try to open the files that's being sent, not store it. If you want that, you'll have to do it manually.
Another option I once tried (successfully) was to: 1. create a share on my local PC to hold the file 2. give everyone full control to that share 3. in the fex add a line to add a network connection with the NET USE command 4. do an APP MAP to that newly created drive 5. do APP HOLD to the newly created APP MAP.
This is a very static solution and is not advisable. But, if you really need it, this may work for you.
