I am trying to create a button to open PDF attachments (data sheets, purchase forms etc.) from a PDM data card button.
In my data card, user can choose a PDF to attach with "Browse" button (see below).
A variable captures that file path.
The "Open" button next to it is supposed to open said file path.
I am aware it's possible to open a specific file with data card button (based on this article).
But this requires the file path to be specified in the button's command string.
When I replaced the file path in that code with my PDM variable, the command prompt popped up but nothing happened after.
Below is the code I used in the command string:
powershell.exe "$n='%MM_Data_Sheet%';$v=New-Object -COMObject ConisioLib.EdmVault;$v.LoginAuto('%2',0);$fo=$v.RootFolder;$f=$v.GetFileFromPath($n,$fo);$f.GetFileCopy(0);start-process $n"
Has anyone tried this before?
By the way, I'm using PDM Professional.
