Apologies for this being a longish post, but wanted to include enough screen shots for clarity. We are having an issue with getting some part variables to appear in derived BOM columns. As shown below, some parts' variables come in fine, while others do not.

Question for my fellow PDM Admins... I am testing Named BOMs originating from Computed BOMs and originating from Item Structures. I've determined that they are stored in different folder structures in PDM (File Folder structure vs. Item Folder structure).

Hello, my first post so bare with me. Hope this is in correct segment. We have a virtual server hosting our PDM service.

currently we are setting up Solidworks PDM Standard. Until now we are creating large assemblies and parts using the function "part in part" in each SW-Part of the assembly to easily manage links and overall dimension. This included Part is the "MasterFile" and contains sketches planes axis,...

We have a need to temporarily turn off all email notices generated in EPDM. We have not found a global method in the SW help pages. The "Message System" feature seems to be based on an individual user only. Ideally there would be a "disable notices from all users and tasks" feature in admin screen, which could later be enabled without need to re-establish either user-specified notices or automatic notices within tasks.

I want to activate tab on Data card using Current State variable. For e.g. Suppose I change file state of particular file so the tab should be activated when file is transferred to required state. Steven Richmond Mar 10, 2017 4:19 AM (in response to Hrishikesh Shirsikar) Create a variable that you set through a workflow transition action with the value %deststatus%.

It probably means that the path of a file (which inlcudes the folders and the file name and its extension) is longer than the 256 character limit supported by Microsoft Windows. If there are many levels of subfolders or very long file names etc, this will cause a long file path and possibly exceed the Windows limit.

Is it possible in Solidworks PDM Professional to add a custom BOM to a part or a document file. What I am trying to accomplish is to add the manufacturing BOM into the PDM BOM ie i want to be able to structure raw materials under a part file. Also is it possible to add to Assembly BOMs in PDM.

We were in the process of thinking of going to SW Pdm Professional, but now also on the table is Dassaults Enovia, which I understand has it's own pdm system. Has anyone made this change & if so how is it's pdm system compared to SW's?

We recently found out a problem that we are unable to receive Notifications after state change in PDM. Also we have set an export rule for BOM export. But PDM is unable to export BOM at desired location (both inside the vault & outside of the vault). Can anyone has solution for this?

Our company is currently moving toward Sharepoint for its data management needs. At the same time, we also need to get a proper PDM to control our data correctly. While I understand the move toward Sharepoint from an enterprise point of vue, I believe that il will cause some problems with our CAD data.

Truncate data card variable So, we have an ECN workflow and I've been adding the variables to Excel and the data card so that excel is populated automatically with what we enter on the data card. For the longest time, on the data card, we left the ECN cell blank and required everyone to type in the actual number.

When I perform a Copy Tree in the Vault, all but one file is added. That file is in <local state>. I can right-click and add the file to vault. Can someone tell me why this is happening?

I looked at using ForceReleaseLocks Method, but it doesn't work on drawings. I started looking into See ISldWorks::CloseAndReopen for details about closing and reopening a drawing document without unloading. But I'm confused to its usage, the sample API, is limited in descriptive help.

I'm new to EPDM and I'm attempting to use dispatch to add a prefix to the file name as I am saving it to the vault using SolidWorks. When I create a new file in SolidWorks and hit save (and save to the vault) I have a serial number that generates a file name. I'd like to add a prefix letter to the file name before it is saved in the vault. I've attempted to write a dispatch for this and I have it attached.

I got great help from an earlier question regarding Indented BOMs. Happy to report that is working well so far. OurBOMs are now viewable in Indented BOM format, and the Parts Only function tabulates & collapses the Indented structure as hoped.

While uploading large batches of Inventor Part Files to the PDM vault, we noticed that every file uploaded had a custom property added to it named "CAGECODE". This property's value is populated with the username of the person that uploaded the file (my last name is Sternberg), quite a peculiar phenomenon. Our Inventor Part Files already had the property "CAGE CODE" originally, and now the software is creating another field when these files are added to the vault.

I'm looking for some advice on the best approach for folder structure inside the PDM Vault. We're planning to migrate parts, assembles and drawings that are currently stored in Windows folder structure as Part Type/Model Number and also in Project folders/Part Type. For the Vault , should we just keep a flat structure and solely rely on Searching of Properties and filters or are folders still useful in organizing and because we're very used to the format?

Rolling-up BOMs We are trying to learn if SolidWorks PDM has a capability to roll-up BOMs within a high-level assembly. We like the BOM feature in EPDM, and its ability to be exported to Excel.

Having an annoying problem everytime I start SW and asking me to login to PDM Workgroup. We have 8 users and 2 of us are having this problem. It started after the vault server was restarted. I have "make default vault" checked.

If a company has all their files in their EPDM vault, and you want to work for them on site, can you have your own license for EPDM (Editor) on your own laptop, go to their office and join their network and access files in their vault, and work as normally as anyone else there would? If you can access their server via IP Address and Ports then you can connect to their vault. You will have to create a Vault View and typically your computer would have to be on their network.

I can't find the option to get rid of the French language in PDM Client (I guess enterprise will face the same problem). My setup is as following: Windows 10 Pro installed in English (Region: France for date, time & Co) - All ok
