RE: datalink columns



fixed

My company uses Webdocs from RJS.

Storing docs in the IFS is simple - compared to the hard part which is document retrieval and tying docs to your database.

Pretty soon users will want to retrieve invoices by invoice #, and then by client#, and by bill of lading #, and then by date and shipper name, etc, etc.

Next they will want to archive more documents then just invoices, along with a host of other retrieval paths.

If successful, it can expand quickly.

My suggestion: take a serious look at a package if possible.

Subject: datalink columns

We are planning on archiving a pdf copy of our invoices in the IFS. To
link these files to the customer/invoice/etc. I am going to create a
table with these values and the filename in the IFS. From my reading it
seems like a datalink column is the way to do it. I have never used
these and am going to start doing some testing. Has anyone done this
and are there any gotchas? Or, is there a better way to do this than
use datalinks?



Thanks,
