    Export Variables Outside EPDM with PDF Creation Task

    Charles Culp

      I need to export metadata with our PDF export task. Currently, we export a PDF to a network location, where it is automatically imported into our Sharepoint server (being implemented now).

       

      I have been asked to modify our PDF export task to include some metadata, which is included in the data card of every drawing. Somehow, I need to push out these variables on the data card, and have them populate either PDF metadata, or as an external .txt/.xml file.

       

      I discussed this previously in this thread: https://forum.solidworks.com/message/401501, but that didn't really get to what I need. Does anyone know where to start with this for native EPDM functionality, or do I need to write an advanced script as part of the task?
