Little database, to "Read only" data from WINDCHILL.

I have a Little excel database, and I would like to read the "Status" and the "Version+Iteration" of drawing.Little Database

Also the description, maintaining some kind of Read-Only link from Windchill, I suppose that somethiing like DTI "DEsktop integration"  that do an OOTB from office applications, but is possible to do ?

@Marco_Tosin shared link if for the document itself ( not data inside ) right ?

 

IMO Desktop integration cannot do that.

 

@mbuonfiglioli you need to make a report

 

Report can be exploited directly or linked as data source in excel.

In these TS articles you can find some advice to work with DTI.

Vincent-Kulak

this is what I was looking for, thanks a lot

Re: Little database, to "Read only" data from WINDCHILL.

Hi Vincent,

yes, as you wrote, DTI cannot make a list like the image from Excel file.

 

You could link attribute from a Windchill WTDocument and put it in his Primary Content, using DTI.

 

To obtain something like in Excel image you have to use a query builder report as source.

 

@mbuonfiglioli

Here you can find lots of report ready to use and some useful advises on how to work with query builder.
