Specify the Application to open the Original (PDF or WRD or XLS) Give a brief description of the file Use a Data Carrier to navigate to stored documents on the network, S drive, etc.

These data carriers have been defined in SAP (Nev_01 to Nev_13) for Nevada region. This is where Ellipse documents were stored. We migrated all standard job documents from these links and stored them in Open text Repository. Documents that are currently sitting in these folders only serve as a backup in case you want to re-load an old document. If your document is stored in one of the links above, you will be able to choose the document. One important thing to note is, SAP will not let you select the data carrier if you don’t have access to it as it will generate an error. Browse to locate the file;

Note: if no data carrier specified, navigate to your files via the Citrix V: drive, specify your username then navigate as usual

Now you will need to check in the document into the OPEN Text Repository. Note the newly added document is not in locked position.

Check in Original by clicking the icon; DD is the only one defined for Plant Maintenance Documents, double click this row;

Note: You can have multiple originals in one DIR, in a WO, they would list like this;
