We are building an Outsystems application where PDF's will be stored, as Binary,  in a table .

The PDF's ( a few thousand) are now located on a networkdrive. Is there a (simple) way to load these in bulk to the Ousystems  entity?   

Thanks in advance

Hi Huub,

Depends on what you call simple :). You'll need to create a Timer that reads the files (I'd advise using the FileSystem component) and puts them in the database.

Hi Kilian

Thanks for your quick reply!

I will look into the FileSystem component. 


It has recently been merged with the Network FileSystem component, so that it's possible to supply credentials for the network drive.

Great! That will do the trick i think.

Thanks again Kilian!

You're most welcome! Happy coding :)
