Converting documents to PDF format in M-Files

Files of the object can be automatically converted into PDF form on the server when the object changes state. Conversion to PDF on the server can be done for files in such source formats as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Outlook, and Visio, as well as RTF and OpenOffice files.

When converting to PDF, M-Files updates the M-Files property fields, if any, in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel documents by using the current metadata of the object.
