The sharing of information is accomplished by allowing the release scripts to pass information to

retrieve the RepositoryDocumentID that will be used by the first invoked release script. Therefore,

the first release script that runs can set this value, and subsequent release scripts can read the same


Notice that when you are passing the RepositoryDocumentID information to a different release

script, the release script must exist within the same document class using multiple release. In
addition, the release script that is passing the RepositoryDocumentID information must be placed

first in the list on the Release Scripts dialog box. For example:

Ascent 7.0 Oracle Content Services 10g

Only the first release script can set the RepositoryDocumentID value. Subsequent release scripts

Refer to your Ascent Capture Help for more information about configuring the

RepositoryDocumentID. You can display Ascent Capture Help from the Help menu available

from any Ascent Capture module. Alternatively, you can select Start | Programs | Ascent

Capture | Ascent Capture Help.
