How to Setup Specifications, Spec Sheets and Proofs


The best way to setup your visuals is in a CSV file with the name of the PDF file in it.  Use the product code to name the PDF file. The full product code, not an abbreviated version.

Why is this the best way to display the data?

Because then this data can be used to upload to a website or referenced in another database. The files would then be batch renamed to new product codes and they would all be uploaded to a directory that then automatically displays them on a website on the corresponding product page.
