I had not used the copy tree feature much in PDM standard but thought I would try to start using it for some assemblies that get used as templates for similar products. I am consistently getting an error when using it. Here is what I am doing:

One of my frustrations with PDM is the significant added lag when opening (and saving) assembly files in SolidWorks. For example, on one of our top level assemblies it takes only 11 seconds to open a fairly larger assembly when I have PDM in off-line mode. In on-line mode, the file open time is increased to 1 minute 33 seconds, a huge difference. When opening in SolidWorks you can see it quickly open and process the files in the first 10-12 seconds, and then it's the spinning blue ring of

So i am trying to create cards to help search through an insane amount of files and I am having issues with the radio buttons. I have 4 radio buttons set up... What i need to be able to do is when I am performing a search in a search card I need to be able to clear whatever button may be checked. if someone is searching for a file using one of these 4 conditions and then decide they would rather just include all 4 options (by them being cleared) it would be way easierthan it would be to cancel

I know well how to map a variable from a folder datacard or file datacard to a cell in Excel. But when I try to do it with a date variable I can't achieve it. Maybe the problem is the date format (because is not a simple text data), I guess.

When using card templates, if an "input formula" driven field is marked read-only, the data won't transfer to the generated file. Solution: Don't mark it read only.

the File Version Upgrade Tool 2017 (2016?) of Solidworks PDM removed the option "automatic update of bom" of all our assemblies. (SPR#581517) Now, that there is the possibility since 2016 to start macros during a file version upgrade (S-070409), it should be possible to add this option during the next file version upgrade to 2018.

We have a MS Word document that contains hyperlinks to all the source documents that make up our Design History File (DHF). Kind of like a table of contents. Currently, the source documents are stored on a web-based server similar to MS SharePoint. We want to move the source documents into EPDM.

I'm upgrading my sandbox vault from 2017 to 2018, I've got everything good to go up to the point of running the Database Upgrade Wizard. It sees my test server, lists the correct test vault to upgrade, lists the correct version number and Status read "Ready for update". I select the vault and click "Next" but I get an error message saying "You must select a vault".I just downloaded the latest version of the tool and still can't get past that screen.

I'm trying to upgrade some files in our EPDM, and no matter how I configure the tool, I keep getting the message below. I've tried logging in as admin, I've tried having the files checking in/checked out, I've tried adding variables, I've tried setting it to overwrite the current version, create a new version. I've changed the location to save the log file to a pdm folder/then a local folder. I've checked and double checked that the folder I am selecting to upgrade does indeed contain files that

I have developed the habit of attaching PDF copies of manuals and datasheets to the Design Binder in models of bought-out items that we use. This means that, in theory, any of my colleagues and I can readily find the details of these items in future. Some of these items are saved as library parts, others are checked into the Workgroup PDM vault.
