Uploading PDF File

  Asked By: Keaton    Date: Feb 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2248

I have an issue that I'm having a problem getting my hands around.
I have a PDF document that is updated hourly and exported to a folder on the server --> Path c:\Inetpub\ftproot\healthy\health.pdf

I am trying to get this document on Sharepoint in the document library. But when I point to the path it only seems to take the initial instance of the file. It does not keep updating.

What is the actual path for the sharepoint document library? It seems like it's a virtual path.

Can someone suggest a way to be able to keep sucking the updated file into my link?

For continual updates you may try exporting the file  using a webdav connection through a virtual  file share. For example a library  at the URL http://wss1/documents can also be accessed through the UNC path  of \\wss1\documents. If you export your document  using the UNC path it will be updated  in sharepoint  each time your application exports it.

The issue  that I'm having is that from Windows I can't hit the UNC
path in order to get to the Document Library.

In Crystal you need to use the UNC path  but I can only access the
Document Library from the http://www.namehere.com/

When you upload the file, the file  gets stored in the database. If the file changes on the drive, the database has no way to know about it. There are two options that I see

Instead of exporting to c:\inetpub\ftproot.. export to http://servername/sites/SiteName/LibraryName.
Use the SyncToy www.microsoft.com/.../synctoy.mspx to echo the new version from the ftp folder  into Sharepoint.
