Hi DMS Gurus,

I want to know more about redlining, i tried this but this is possible only in autocad file, pdf file, jpg file, bmp file, but how to use in microsoft office... can anybody help me.




Redlining in SAP DMS:

You can use the ECL viewer to create redlining files for 2D or 3D originals. In

this way changes are not made to the original itself. The redlining information

is stored separately in additional files. This feature can only be used if you

use the KPro to check in originals. As well as storing texts, graphics, and

measurements, you can also measure angles and radii for 2D originals. The ECL

viewer also enables you to load and compare other originals. Sectioning gives

you a cross-section of the original.

To activate redlining option

It has to be done with the 2D viewer (EAIWeb.webviewer2D.1 %SAP-CONTROL%) to do redlining

so you cannot use %auto% or inplace or outplace.

Microsoft office integration:

You can use the Microsoft Office integration to create, change, or display originals

with Microsoft Office applications (such as Word or Excel) in the document info


Displaying and changing can be conducted both inplace and outplace. In both

cases you retain the integration to the document info record. If you edit the

original application file with MS Office integration, then you can copy the master

data for the document into the original application file.

Note : There is no redlining in word or excel.
