Assemble PDF's located in Network folder

Mar 14, 2011 12:28 PM



I am trying to assemble PDF's which are located in a network folder..


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<DDX xmlns="">

     <PDF result="PDFA.pdf">

          <PDF source="\\w2msmossmgn02\SharedFolder\PID_APR_P111556.pdf"/>

          <PDF source="\\w2msmossmgn02\SharedFolder\PID_P111556.pdf"/>




when the assembler service is invoked with the above DDX, i get an error as below,


com.adobe.internal.ddxm.DDXMException: com.adobe.internal.pdfm.CollateralNotFoundException:

DDXM_S14017: A <PDF> source document is required, but no documents were found for {PDF source="\\w2msmossmgn02\SharedFolder\PID_APR_P111556.pdf" baseDocument="true"}.


I have also tried giving the files names as specified in the DDXREF help file as below,


file:///dir-path/filename  (file:///w2msmossmgn02/SharedFolder/PID_APR_P111556.pdf) but it didn't work either.

Can some one pls help?


Thank you,

    There are two options that I can see:

    1 - map a drive (on the server) to the w2msmossmgn02\SharedFolder and use that mapping in the source.  For example:  If I may drive X to w2msmossmgn02\SharedFolder then my DDX would have the entry:  <PDF source="file:///x:/PID_P111556.pdf"/>


    2 - Use the "Read Document" operation to read the PDFs into a variable (or a list of document)  then use the "Invoke DDX" operation to map the variables to the PDF source entries.
