Here is the situation. I need to save a large number of drawings in my database. Unfortunately, the migration tools and save functions executed from a PDM Task Ad-In does NOT trigger the update of PDM variables. That is the purpose of this activity. I have run macros from an open session, and that works, but only on the active window. I wish to try executing a PDM Task that spawns a local .swp macro file to execute the save activity to see if this fixes the issue.
In my case, I do not even need to force a rebuild. Simply a save will do. This is what I intend to do.
- Check out the applicable drawings from a strategic search. (I do NOT want this part of the Task, I can do this for myself to keep it simple).
- Select the checked out files, execute the Task Ad-In from menu selection
- Check files back in (Also done manually).
I need help writing the Task Ad-in script, as well as the .swp file will be called from the task.
Any takers? If you know what you are doing, I would think this would be quite quick. I'm not in that category of individuals. Please help!!
