I want to attach reference file using key-in command in a batch process command file. Both “RF=” and “reference attach” are properly working with coincident view (*) without any user input of pressing “Ok” button in the reference attach dialog box. But for the “coincident world” view (#), it needs a user input of pressing “Ok” button in the reference attach dialog box. I need to attach reference with world coincident system. Can anybody reply how I can use the command for world coincident attachment without pressing “ok” button in the dialog box?
Unfortunately, the # character is used as a comment character in the Batch Processing utility (in a BPRC file) as opposed to its use in the key-in browser. We have filed an enhancement to add this functionality to BP. Here's how it would work. the # character at the beginning of a BPRC line would act as a comment and further in the line it would act as it does in the key-in browser. I would estimate April to June of next year for availability.
Thank you for your updates
in V8i I attached multiple refs using just comma and didn't get a dialog..Barry's undocumented solution worked in MC upd 13 but any space in description and just the first word is read.. " ' \" tried all sorts..Works in V8i but not latest CONNECT.Had to replace space with underscores..Is it any wonder people want to stick with what sort of works. v8iBentley need a Troubleshooter/Software tester...

I was able to get this to work in CONNECT. Note the space in the Description.
Also note that the following still works in CONNECT:
in CE upd 14 I still have to replace spaces with dashs "-" or it keeps using just the first word of description and then complains about view name..using "quotes" does nothing and it works with dashs.I'm running it as a simple script with @.
Basically I get the PW name and PW description using Set >Show references in Projectwise.Use excel to create rf= script. where Ref logical = PW name and Ref description = PW Description
Then open in standalone CE dettach all refs and reattach with @ script
It makes sorting models in federated models easy using logical (PW Name) or the Description.Makes it much much easier.... to use Level manager and to set levels.... to find which models graphics are in by hover or tentative..BTW...in PW CE latest & all versions if you change the PW_WORKDIR and use browseit doesn't add the last "/"you still have to add it manually after 5yrs.I reported this long long time ago..Will try to remember to log a CR ..

Hi Karsten Evans,
I am not sure if this may help, but consider at least verifying your constructed key-ins against some working recommendations I provided in this reply: Using ProjectWise MicroStation MCM key-ins to attach Rasters and References.HTH,Bob
