    Prep Utility -- UNC

    Sandy McQuay

      I'm trying to call the Prep utility from another program (Winbatch) using UNC for pathways of the inputfile and outputfile.  Doesn't seem to work.  It does work with mapped drives, but I would prefer using UNC.

       

      Is the Prep utility capable of using UNC?

       

      Thanks,

          Unfortunately Prep does not understand UNC paths.  Which function of Prep are you using, just for my own information?

            Trying to use the command line options of PREP:

             

            prep inputfile outputfile conversion parameters

             

            Inputfile and outputfile exist on the network and instead of having to map drives I was hoping to use UNC.  Oh well, can't have it all!
