Filename conversion for Open Text’s eDocs DM

December 11th, 2008

I needed a quick tool to convert document numbers to filenames.  We have an old tool that someone either wrote or we found somewhere but everything’s in the interface and it’s not totally accurate so I wrote a quick .NET component into which you can pass the document number and it’ll give you the calculated portion of the filename.  Add that to the DocServer_Loc and Path, the Version and SubVersion and voila you’ll pretty much know the filename.

The interface I wrote with this already has the Version and SubVersion options (default configurations have 99 versions and 26 subversions plus the “!” to indicate no subversions).  The interface also has minimal error handling.

If you need a quick, down-and-dirty way to convert the document number to a filename feel free to download this little app and you can even embed the dll into your own app if it helps . . . just don’t charge anyone for it.
