search.pro: is there a way to have a file name with a space in it?

ok, here is the dilemma

work went and put a cloud filing system in place, which is awesome.

and i want to move all of our template files for Creo to it. but the file name of the cloud folder has a space in it

ie user/user_name/cloud folder/

and as far as i know, file names with spaces in them don't work in Creo,

so, is there a way to make Creo read file names with spaces in them or am i up the creek with out a paddle?

just so you know dropbox works a treat with file propagation between users. its awesome for transferring your common data between users locally or to your home system... much easer too. why we didnt use dropbox ill never know.

Not a problem. You can spaces in folder names for search.pro.

Just enclose the path with quotes on each end (").

hrmn i seam to be missing something
creo cant find my start part folder

template_solidpart "C:\Users\$username\Box Sync\PTC\CREO_STDS\startpart_dir\startpart.prt"

The variables will be read literally when placed in quotes.

I am not sure how you string stuff together in Creo.

Technically it would be "C:\Users\"+$username+"\Box Sync\..."
