    OLE Links in Container Fields

    taylorsharpe

      I have a FM12 file that has a bunch of old OLE Documents in Container fields. Obviously the OLE links are just links and the actual document is not there. Is there a way to get the link name with some get function or a plugin so I can find out where those documents are to reimport properly as normal Container Documents? If I can get the link, I can then write a script to do this as a big batch job.

       

      Also, how do I find out which Documents are OLE documents other than manually control-clicking on them in Windows? I can see the link then, but I don't know how to pull that link out as a variable. Also, it would be nice if I could do this on my development machine, which is a Mac. But I guess none of the OLE functions work on Macs. Thanks for any input.
