Create links to files on a gslide page

Hello all;

I'd like to create a page with gslide and ods pdf to produce a page with a series of shortcuts that link to various (pdf) files in the same directory. For instance, the shortcut may show as HM on the slide and lead to \server\directory\subdirectory\HotMill.pdf.

Does anyone have some basic code that I can use to get started?

Using SAS 9.4 on Windows ...

Thank you,

Bill

Re: Create links to files on a gslide page

And now I have it working.Smiley Happy  The \'s in the sharepoint link need to be turned around. The forward slash /  is needed - as shown below.

note link="file://sharepoint/CoilReports/Yield/AMT_Yield2015.pdf" "AMT Yield Report";

Other ideas are still welcome!

Re: Create links to files on a gslide page

I've managed to get part way ...

ods pdf file="c:\temp\testfile.pdf" notoc;

proc gslide;

note link="\\sharepoint\CoilReports\Yield\AMT_Yield2015.pdf" "AMT Yield Report";

note link="http://duarte.com" "Duarte";

run;

quit;

ods pdf close;


The duarte.com link works as expected,

however, the sharepoint link produced is prefixed with file:///C|/ and all of the \'s between the directory levels have been deleted.

Any tips for how to solve this latest difficulty?

Or is there another way to do what I'm trying to do?

Thank you,

Bill
