Open file in procedure editor


I need to duplicate the functionality of the windows file explorer then it will open a file.p in the OpenEdge Procedure Editor (character mode).

With file explorer I can right-click on the file and within the sub-menu there is an option to open the file with the procedure editor.

Can someone supply me with the executable command to do this from outside of file explorer. I am using OpenEdge 10 on a windows 8 PC.

I tried using c:\pro101C\bin\prowin32.exe -p file.p
But that does not work.

I think it is not finding the propath??? :(

Anybody know how to set up/use datadigger? I've tried with the connection string in the readme.txt file and am getting an error.

I am new to OpenEdge and don't know much about any of their tools. I am very familiar with SQL and to some extent Oracle.

Error I'm getting is:
R-code file not located for "c:\datadigger\datadigger.p" (473)
** Unable to run startup procedure c:\datadigger\datadigger.p. (492)

Installation help

I am unable to get datadigger running.
I have no documentation other than the 3 lines contained in readme.txt
The error is:
R-code file not located for "c:\datadigger\datadigger.p" (473)
** Unable to run startup procedure c:\datadigger\datadigger.p. (492)

Here is my startup line pointing to prowin32.exe:
c:\IS21\Progress\bin\prowin32.exe -basekey "INI" -p c:\datadigger\DataDigger.p

What is the DataDigger?

The DataDigger is a window that shows all tables in all connected databases. You can select a table, select which fields you want to see and browse through the data of that table. You can add, update, delete, import and export the data, even multiple records at the same time.

The DataDigger is free and can be found at https://datadigger.wordpress.com/


How to install?

Hi, just trying to get this to work. So I installed OEA (10.1C), downloaded the zip, unpacked it in my testproject, then went on to step 3 from the installation guide:

3. Modify the dotr/Maia.cls as follows ....

But I cannot find a dotr/Maia.cls. There is a sports.cls that looks like it has the required structure, but should I rename/modify it? And where should it be placed?

I definitely could use a little more help here.
