I've create a task to make a TIF or PDF file when a drawing file goes through a work flow.
I've set up variables so the new file gets a populated data card. this works well when the destination folder stays inside the PDM system.
I would like this process to save a file and the data to another server to be picked up by another application.
Is there a was to create a text file with the same filename followed by .TXT that contains the variable value information.
I've been successfully playing with dispatch's general parameter file. I can't get it to work consistently and I'm not sure if it can be kicked off from a workflow. I think dispatch is the wrong approach.
I looked for some code in the convert task script but can't find anything to work with. (VBA skills could be lacking.)
