OLE object in datawindow - error accessing external object property

OLE object in datawindow - error accessing external object property

OLE object in datawindow - error accessing external object property

(OP)
Please help me, I can't solve this error message in Powerbuilder v10.5. I would like to display pdf documents from saved links in datawindow.
I insert OLE object ole_1 (Acrobat acrobat document) to datawindow dw_1, dw_1 is DataObject in window w_datawindow_drawing. If I run this I get error message: error accessing external object property...
I try inserting OLE object to w_datawindow_drawing without problems, only when I insert to datawindow have it. Where I create mistake?
Thanks.

//Here is script:

open (w_datawindow_drawing)
string pdf_link
integer result
pdf_link = "c:\product.pdf"
result = w_datawindow_drawing.dw_1.object.ole_1.LinkTo( pdf_link )
 

RE: OLE object in datawindow - error accessing external object property

Have you tried using the .Object for the OLE object itself?  For instance, using your example, it would look like:

w_datawindow_drawing.dw_1.Object.ole_1.Object.LinkTo( pdf_link )
