|When working with
documents from the SmarTeam database, the documents are first extracted
from the vault and copied to a local folder then loaded in the CATIA
There are two main folders:
The consequence of this behavior is that each time a document is linked to another document, the linked document should be searched for in the folder containing the pointing document.
|This behavior can
easily be set in CATIA:
The application manages the links of documents saved in the database in this hierarchical order:
For further information about linked document localization strategies, see "Document" in the CATIA - Infrastructure User's Guide Version 5.
When extracting documents from the vault, you can also specify different Work directories for each extracted file (by changing the default directory in the life-cycle window). In this specific case, the Folder of the pointing document strategy will not be able to recover the linked documents. Another strategy, called SmarTeam Database has to be used. This strategy asks the SmarTeam database where the linked document has been copied.
