Hi,
I am working on a conversion project of Filenet's workflo from 16 bit(4.16) to 32 bit(5.02). I am looking for some documentation of batching and indexing done in 32 bit version of this software. There are a few document
entry controls that are not available in the 32 bit version. I am looking for possible solutions for this.

Regards
Omer
P.S. Anyone worked on Filenet application - please let me know.

after some painful research -->

Here is what i know, from a some documentation that I could find for FileNet's document entry class of controls
of Filenet. They have stopped upgrades for this since they came out with the 32 bit version of the imaging
software called worklfo 5.03. I assume they let their clients rely on third party controls for document
entry operation. This involves controls that can recieve data from a scanner and arranging that in a
format that is comprehensible by Workflo 5.03. I have been looking for third party vendors for this.

IF ANY ONE HAS ANY POINTERS ON THIS, LET ME KNOW

In Workflow Script Developers guide volume 1
see under document entry section.
You can find how to index and commit the batches.

If you dont have that book let me know.
I can send you some examples from that book

Thanks,
Suresh

I dont have any literature on workflo, we are currently in the proposal stage, any documentation would be really helpful.
Where are you?

Hi,
Here are some methods.
The following example retrieves all the information
avilable about the batches on the current system

BatchName : string[];
Busy      : boolean[];
Phase     : number[];
Class     : string[]

error     : number;
error:= call "Get All Baatches"
   get(BatchName:= F_BatchName
       ,Phase:=F_NextPhase
       ,Busy:= F_IsBusy
       ,Class:=F_DocumentClass);

Indexing example

BatchHandle : handle;
DocID       : document;
AppName     : string;
AppRegion   : string;
error       : number;

error := call "Index Document"
     set(F_batchHandle:= BatchHandle,
         F_DocumentNumber:= DocID,
         F_UserInterface:= true)
     get(AppName:=Name,
         AppRegion:= Region);

I dont have much time. so i cant send all examples.
PS: If you have FileNET user account you can download
documentation on workflow.

Dont forget to give me the points

Regards,
suresh

There is no need to go thrid party controls.
We have successfully implemented 5.03 controls.
But i am not an expert in this field.

The information you gave was pertinent, but it didnt solve the problem as I had stated earlier the controls (16 bit) were converted to 32 bit but they werent OCx's and Filenet was unwilling to give us the ocx version of the components.
In the end we switched to the new IDM, so everything worked out fine.

Later
