Using Data Entry Grids and Forms : Working with Records : Attaching a Document to a Grid Record : Viewing an Attached Document

Viewing an Attached Document
If the file type of an attached document is associated with a default software program on the local computer, you can preview the file in the Preview Attached Documents window. Additionally, clicking Open opens the attached document for editing or viewing purposes.
To view or open an attached document, follow these steps:
Select one or more pipeline segments in the Select ROWs window. Click Save to close the window (Figure 7-4).
Open the data entry grid that includes the grid record with the attached document. For example, click Data Entry > Edit CPDM Data > Test Point > Inspection to open the Test Point Inspection grid.
If you want to collapse the Selected ROWs panel to view more of the grid, click the Selected ROWs bar. Clicking the bar again expands the panel.

When the Preview Attached Documents window opens, select a file in the list on the left side of the window to preview the file (Figure 7-103).
Click the close button to close the Preview Attached Documents window.
Note: When you open and then edit an embedded document, changes apply only to the copy stored in the PCS Axis database; changes do not apply to the source file stored outside of PCS Axis. Likewise, editing the source file applies changes to the source file, not the copy stored in the PCS Axis database.
