  • PC-DMIS import language

    I have been asked a question concerning the import of a DMIS text file into PC-DMIS. They are wanting to know about a DIMS language and not DMIS, something about the database the software operates on. Does anyone know what this is or explain it to me about how it works?


    TIA

    You can export a PCDMIS program as "Basic" file. The result is a text file which has your PCDMIS program converted to a syntax a Basic compiler like "MS Visual Basic" can use as programming code. I cant be sure how compadible this code would be in with another Basic compiler though.

    After this code has been exported from PCDMIS to a BASIC text file. You can then open the code in Visual Basic, but from this point on you will have to know Visual Basic commands to get further use out of your exported PCDMIS program, to the skilled individual that know VB coding this could give you complete control of your program to do anything you wanted, I imagine even things your not suppose to do.

    You however cant Import uncompiled VB code back into PCDMIS.

      Hehe whoopsie,

      Your talking about something else.

      Nevermind... After rereading this post I guess I was off topic.

        Are they perhaps referring to DMIS as opposed to PC D-MIS?
        It is my understanding D-MIS is a more generic format.
        You can import and export D-MIS programs.

          They know I run PC-DMIS and they also know that DMIS is the standard. They are thinking that to be able to import a DMIS text program into PC-DMIS that it needs to be in another type of format.

          I have imported a DMIS text file into PC-DMIS but they are thinking something else needs to be done.

            I seem to recall DIMS being an import export option AGES ago. I translated a couple of hundred programs for a customer several years ago and it seems to me like DIMS was one of the options we explored at that time. We ended up going with DMIS, but I do vaguely remember DIMS being an option that we did explore. Sorry I can't help.

              Do they insist you use DMIS? If so why? From what I understand the metrological math is the same no matter what the software. The non-measuring stuff is where they differ but I am under the imression that the mathematics for calculating the geometrical stuff is the same. I may be wrong.

                Bill,

                Do you remember what DIMS was? or what it refers to?


                Craiger,

                They were thinking there was more to importing a DMIS text program into PC-DMIS

                  Sorry man I just don't recall. I did a quick GOOGLE on it and didn't find anything remotely related. I would recommend calling "OH NO" Tech Support and talking to one of them. Maybe Jerrad at Wilcox can help. You can email him from the Wilcox site or at least you used to be able to.

                  I just Googled DATABASE DIMS FILE and this came up. It's a start.

                  <dims set> set of ilwd dimensions, comma separated e.g. 1,10,100,1000

                    Try Googling for DATABASE DIMS FILE and see if that helps you out. It appears to be a standard for database files.

                    DIMS = DOCUMENT AND IMAGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

                      Guys,

                      Pure DMIS will import into Pc-dmis just fine with very little interevention and editing.

                      DIMS was a flavor of pc-dmis text file that could export out and be read in by Pc-dmis. When they went to Win 3.1, the DOS programs could be migrated out this way. It was also another way to use a program in a newer version of Pc-dmis. Export out the DIMS file and export it in to the newer version.

                      I don't know what version they stopped making this available, but I still have version 2.3072 on my computer and it has it. Even the newer versions will take in the DIMS file format, just not output it.
