path problem during Change of Original

Hello,

I am facing path problem while changing the Original file in a DIR.

let say i created a DIR x and attached file a.txt from c:\ and saved the DIR.

Now if i use cv02 and select a original for change the popup window comes with data carrier and original file path the path is shown as c:\a.txt which is actual original path.

if i click on continue it is opening the c:\a.txt files and changes are done on the original file on my pc.

This way my original file is changed on pc and in DIR also.

I want to know how to avoid this?.

Regards

Shiv

    Is the file checked in? This is the normal behaviour before a file is checked in, but not after.

    Afterwards, the temp path is used.

      Hi,

      I have already maintaind a data carrier in dc20. but it is utilised only for displaying document. whenever i go for change it is refering to original files.

      please advice what need to be done so that for display and change we can specify specific location say c:\temp. so that we can not loose original file from desktop..

    That is why they call it document "Management". The Original File is in the "Vault" where it can be managed, not on the desktop. If you want to protect/save the file on your desktop, set the flag in the config of the workstation application to not allow "rename" of the temporary file. You are just attempting to circumvent the intended design of the system. What you should really do is set the flag to "delete" the file after check-in.
