Registry MSDS Printing (msdspdfpath)


The system allows the MSDS sheet to be a pre-generated PDF file. The system will print the PDF form of the MSDS if it exists and the SAMPRO text MSDS (entered in on the MSDS tab of the Inventory Item viewer) if not.


The name of the MSDS PDF file for a given inventory item is of the form invntryitm_id.PDF.

If the location of the PDF reader of the PDF file cannot be located, operation will continue as before.
