We currently are in the process of implementing PDM Ent 2007 SP5.
What we want to do is mass (bulk) import our drawings, assemblies and parts into PDM and are 90% there. I am stuck on 2 areas and I have never recieved an answer to my first problem from my VAR or here and am hoping for a different result this time. (Plus the cost of asking the VAR to do some customizing is killing my project budget.)

Anyways what we want to do is to be able to import the Item Description Field on a File Card from an external mssql database. I would like to see it run as a hook if possible so when the file card is selected it would update that field.


A dll addin that could run during the workflow to update the description value by running the query against the ERP DB to get the current description.

BTW my first request that seemed to return no answer was a way to export to csv or txt the current Rev Level of a file when it has been processed through a workflow.
