Windchill Desktop Integration: Created By vs Last Modified By


Hi,

We use Windchill DTI to create new Office documents based on templates.  We are experiencing some issues with Created By and CreateTime attributes in Office documents.  We want to use the creator and the correct creation time of the document, but this doesn't seem to work for us...

Office attribute Created By and CreateTime should be linked to the first creation of the document.  Instead, they are linked and stay linked to the creator and creation time of the template the document is based on.  If we use Last Mofified By and Last Mofified Date, the creation info of the last iteration is used.

Does anyone have an idea how this could be solved?  Which attributes need to be used if we want to show the creation info of the document instead of the template?

Kr,

Sven

I'm not sure this will make a difference but do you want the Create Time of when the document was originally save outside of PDMLink or when it was first uploaded?

Re: Windchill Desktop Integration: Created By vs Last Modified By

We want to use the Create Time and Created By of the first iteration of the newly created document (Windchill attributes).

We are using templates, we don't upload a new document.
