We are saving ".TIF" files on the IFS and creating a symbolic link to point to the selected file. When an operator selects a ".tif" file stored in the QDLS file system, a symbolic link is created for her in the root directory. EX: ADDLINK OBJ ('/QDLS/01036852.0/T20V6SM.TIF') NEWLINK(JHLNK.TIF) LNKTYPE(*SYMBOLIC). The directory containing the link object is a mapped drive from the 400 to the pc. Scenario: User #1 opens the file with NT's IMAGING and edits it--makes comments, highlights, etc.., then exits and saves the revised '.tif'. The save only applies to the link object--it does NOT follow the path back to the QDLS object and save there. Why isn't the original file T20V6SM.TIF updated in QDLS? Any help on "symbolic links" would be appreciated!
