Subject:RE: Word Viewer and Graphics From:"Jessica N. Lange" <jlange -at- OEE -dot- com> To:"TechWR-L" <TECHWR-L -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com>, "salatas" <salatas -at- micron -dot- com> Date:Thu, 13 Jan 2000 07:43:46 -0500
I investigated an electronic document management system
which produced the same results you mention: no pictures.
Turns out that because we LINK all pix in Word, the pix would
not show up: the DocMan system couldn't resolve the internally
coded paths to the pictures, since the system used it's *own*
paths, file & folder naming structure. Experiments with
embedding the pictures showed this overcame the problem.
We did not purchase the system because we didn't want
to modify 10,000+ documents!
Do you link the graphics in your Word docs? If so, that may
be your problem; try embedding to see if that helps.
BTW, the system I was looking at was Docushare.
