I've been trying to incorporate attributes that exist in Windchill into Excel with limited success. One such attribute is 'modified by' I can see this in Windchill but cannot see it when I attempt to use the field in Excel. I have been informed by the support team that this should be mapped in the msoimap.xml file.
Again I have attempted to do this but the updated section in the msoimap fails to drive anything new into excel. I have even attempted to drive in a second attribute which I can already see under a different msname in the map file.
The other issue I have is that although 'Modified By' is the display name it cant be the attribute as it has a space in it.
Any help on this would be great.
I am very interested on this topic, also for other all Office documents type.
In the on-line manual I found this :
I don't know what it would be but someone that could help might want to know what version of Windchill and Office you are running.
As a side note, Office 365 when implemented in the cloud is not supported by PDMLink 11.0 I don't know about 11.1 or if it will be supported in the future. Unfortunately for me, the company I work for will be going to 365 in the cloud.
We used to have this implemented and for e.g. Modified By it is about editing msoimap.xml as pretty much described here
However, now we've adopted templates without that information and only name, number, state, category and a comment in header that workflow is electronically managed, ie. someone interested in that can find the participants from Windchill by the doc number.
