How to Perform a Batch Load using IdcCommand from a Remote Client


This article describes the set up required for UCM 7.5 and 10g on a remote workstation to access the Stellent Content Server remotely and perform a batch load. For 11g steps, see the following note:

The task of creating the hundreds of lines required for a command file can be simplified by using editing tools. This article contains one example of how you can prepare a Batch Load Command file using the editing and mail merge features of Microsoft Office.
