Export PDF for older revisions from Workgroup PDM

Question asked by Sudheer Raju on Aug 30, 2016




I need help regarding creating PDF of older SW Drawings saved in Workgroup PDM using VBA API. These are the cases where the PDF aren't available or were created for older revisions. This could be those which were created before the option for PDF auto-creation option wasn't available in Workgroup PDM.



The API doc.HasPDF returns 0, which means there was/is no PDF available for that specific older revision. As PDF wasn't created for that older revisions, I thought there would be API support to export the Drawing with "Get References: AS BUILT" option that shows in "Open/ Checkout document", which exports specific revisions with related sub-ASM and child's and then Save As PDF using regular SW API.




Please help.
