Hi, I am using Planet Image & seem to have a problem getting Image to pick up variables from the data I am providing, I want image to pick up the file name for the archive and also the email address.

I have tried picking the variable up by right clicking in the 'file name' box and choosing Select Data, which then puts the location of the data i.e. @(1,1,1,1,10,KeepCase,NoTrim).pdf but when the PDF is produced the name is %.pdf.

I have used Select data before in Planet Press and Planet Watch and it has always worked fine.

Has anyone been able to use Select Data in Image??

I have figured out what I was doing wrong, I had 'Add Document' in the process which appeared to be confusing Image/Watch, I have now removed 'Add Document' and it picks up the data to name the PDF, however it still won't pick up an email recipient by using Select Data.
I can get it to work by using a data selection in Planet Press and label it as an email address and then check the use documents email address box.

Should Image be able to pick up an email address from the data this way?

Bonjour/Hello!

Here below an image of what I did to make it work with a data selection. I'm assuming here that this is the approach you are looking for.

One other thing I would like to verify with you is:
Verify your PWatch service and how it is set up. (Top menu -> Tools -> Configure services)
- Does your service running "Local system account" ?
If it is the case and you are using "Use Microsoft Outlook", you need to use the same profile as the one running under Windows and more precisely the Outlook default account.

Thanks LAPD, that is exactly how I have set it up too.

I don't use Outlook instead I use SMTP.

In the log for Image it says:
INFO : Starting SMTP email....
ERROR: I1016 : No recipients
INFO : Image Process succeded

The email address is in the data on line 31, when I use get data it comes with the code:
@(1,31,31,1,31,KeepCase,NoTrim)

The data is in CSV emulation, not sure if that would make a difference?

Hello,

OK in that case could you add an extra branch to your process to capture the data and see if the mapping is correct? Just checking that when it hits the document the data haven't moved around !

If it is correct, I would suggest that you slightly change your selection so instead of "NoTrim" it shows "Trim".

Not sure what you mean by a data capture, but I have tried changing "NoTrim" to "Trim" and it works great.

Thanks for your advice.
