Here is a beta of my epdm excel2007 addin.
Hope that some on can use it
I get an error when I try to install from setup . I already have MSOffice installed , Solidworks 2010 Premium , EPDM Cad Editor
Have you installed WindowsInstaller3_1 and DotNetFX35, on your pc.
Humm, try to run \VSTOR30\VSTOR30.exe first, and then run setup.exe.
Did you get it to work?
Just curious if you would be willing to share. I have been developing something similar, but more business specific for my company. The one issue I am having how to update the datacard variables.
The office application has a lock on the file and when trying to update the card I get the dreaded file is open by another application.
I don't know or can't seem to find how to get the datacard to update without closing the file in Excel first. More specifically Word is really creating a problem for me...
Yes what do you need. I have no problem with update data card.
I solve it by just close the doc whe i refresh the data card, and then open the doc again.
Ok, I am doing the same right now. I was wondering if you found a way to update the data card without closing the document. I would imagine there has to be some kind of way, but nothing I could find yet...
With Word especially, when you close and then reopen you either let it open back to first page or have to identify current page and cursor location prior to closing to reposition the document.
I have spoken with some smart head, and also searched the Internet for a recipe on how to get around this problem. I have even spoken with SW. But at the moment i haven got a fix for this problem.
So for the moment i think, that's we have to close and open the doc. every time. We make some operation in ePDM:-(
But if you hear some thing, plise posit
Every user's default settings under Warning settings is to Stop when checking in/checking out a file that is opened in another application. I haven't tested this, but because this setting is default, it may be affecting the update of the data card? I think you need to have the file checked out to edit fields in the data card.
