Adding file attachments and setting attributes
You can add a file attachment to a PDX package, and specify whether the attachment is included within the package.
Including a file within the PDX package
If you want the file included within the PDX package:
- With the Attachment element selected, click on the Find File (...) button in the referenceName attribute cell.
- Navigate to the location of the file that you want to include, select the file, and click the Open button. The dialog box closes, adds the file name to the referenceName, embeds the file reference within the universalResourceIdentifier, and creates a unique fileIdentifer code. The isFileIn attribute is set to Yes.
Referring to an external file without including it
If you want to refer to an external website, ftp server, or file without including the file within the PDX package:
- With the Attachment element selected, type the reference into the referenceName attribute cell. If you are referencing a website, include the prefix http:// or https://. If you're referencing an FTP site, include the prefix ftp://. Any other text will be interpreted as a file name.
- When you tab out of the cell, the value will be copied to the universalResourceIdentifier attribute, with the appropriate prefix of http://, ftp:// or file://. The referenceName is not changed and a fileIdentifer is not created. The isFileIn attribute is set to No.
