Hello friends
I have a process that returns a certain page of a pdf, I do this with Alambic, it works Ok.
but there are occasions that multiple extraction processes want to access the same pdf at the same moment, and I know this is the error.
can you help me save the concurrency error, the script is in vbscript.
greetings and thank you very much.

Hi Ted,

Can you clarify what you need? When you mention "save the error", do you mean fix it or actually save it?

Also, can you post the actual error you get and describe a bit more in detail what your process does and the end result desired? It will help find alternate ways to proceed.

Lastly, a generic way to work around the situation you describe would be to save a copy of the target PDF for each instance calling it, using a unique filename for the copy, and using a variable in your logic to call that specific instance, making sure each process calling that file calls its own instance.

Thanks. Regards,
