FileNet

I am learning about FileNet and have a task at hand to create an excel file using VBA and then add this file to FileNet.  I'm trying to find some good examples of how this can be done.  Thanks.

It is through Panagon Content Services.

I am not familiar with Panagon, although I understand it has a well structured object model.  So I do not believe that what you are attempting should be all that difficult.

You may want to take a look at FileNet's Services & Support section.

It seems to be structured very well and there seems to be ample source code proveded as resources.  So I think it is a matter of sorting it out.
I have been reading and looking at the IDM Toolkit documentation and I've used the commondialog model supplied in the excel dll supplied by IDM.  The way It is working now is the call to the idmfilesave function I have placed in a module of my own.  The process of putting the files into filenet as I am doing it brings up the saveas dialog(which I don't want).  My goal here is to upload the files without interaction from the user.  The second "leg" of this(another topic) is to perform a rendition on the file(.xls) into .pdf format.  But that's another day :)  I am going to read up more over the weekend and see what comes into light.

Thanks.

Start excel.Start macro.Create a new excel form.
Now see the macro. Macro gives you information
how to create a excel. copy this code to your
idm code and paste it.
Idm has the facility to add the document to
the repository. Document.save option.
This will add it to repository.
Please see that when you install IDM desk top
it should be integrated to word and exel applications.


Thanks,

I have read into this more, and I've found the method of putting these files into filenet has to be done using the thin client only.  I'm still searching for examples.
Thanks for the responses.
