I'm looking for a way of coming up with a list of all files being referenced by files on a certain directory (and it's subdirectories).
To illustrate: say I have a folder in PW containing several subfolders which contain several Microstation (DGN) files. Most of these DGN files contain references from other files in separate directories. Is there a way of obtaining a list of all these files that are being referenced?
I'm using Microstation CONNECT and Projectwise explorer 10
Thanks a lot
Have you considered using PWPS_DAB? You can find more information about it in the ProjectWise PowerShell Extensions Forum.
Here's what is available related to reference files:
You might take a look at this approach:
Get-PWReferenceReportForFolder -FolderPath 'dww\Test Folder 03' -OutputFilePath 'c:\temp\ReferencesTestFolder03.xlsx'
And here's peek at the output file:

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I do not have access to PW Power Shell Extensions. Is there another way of achieveng my goal or even circumventing this limitation?
I was about to reply with "not that I am aware of", but then I remembered "Dave's Reports" which is included in MostOfDavesTools.
I don't know what each of those reports actually produce, but it is probably worth a look.
You can find the installer for MostOfDavesTools here:
Note that MostOfDavesTools is available with the same disclaimer as for PWPS_DAB:

Perhaps someone else has found some other way to get the information that you want?
