I was wondering of anyone could help through the process of creating and importing an XML file to which EPDM will import please? I cant seem to find any documentation which tells you how to create an xml file for EPDM to then import. Also how does EPDM then add future imports to the list or does it just replace the list?

I'm currently having an issue with my Solidworks PDM Setup. I have no issue connecting to the vault with a computer directly connected to the local network but when someone attempts to connect to the vault through Microsoft VPN it throws this error: "Could not access the item in the database." when I check the log file it reads: Error running query in SpDbOdbc

I have just converted from workgroups PDM to PDM standard and don't really understand how to get files and assemblies into the vault. I copied and pasted an assembly from my local drive but it does not seem to have copied in all the components of the assembly. The assy is only one file.

Is there a way to make the data entered on a file card all capitals? I realise that where that text is linked to a drawing I can make it display in capitals, but I want to make it capitals here, Ideally it would enter in capitals even if the used is typing in lower case, or alternatively it could reject lower case character (less good).

At the completion of a drawing we normally have to create a PDF and dwg version of the solidworks drawing. These are also stored in the vault. Is it possible to drag the data/variables stored in the drawing file into a dwg or PDF file?

2018 Beta3 and Pre1 "Browse" dialog in Branch window stops all interaction with other windows of PDM. It looks like "ViewServer.exe" stops responding when the Browse dialog is opened from Branch.

Is it a way to see my file directly in PDM Preview like office file or SW file. I would recommend contacting your SolidWorks reseller. The configuration of this may need to be custom written.

We implemented the EPDM server a while ago, to NOT ALLOW duplicate files. We are wanting to migrate data into the system which has several duplicate files in many folders in many locations. Are we able to remove the duplicate file names on the server without experiencing any problems...........any advice to doing this is appreciated.

If you have the newest Adobe Reader which is called Acrobat Reader DC, your EPDM preview windows may have some extra panes that get in the way of previewing your file. Here is what it might look like: The Bookmarks pane on the left and the Tools pane take up most of the space, leaving little room for the actual preview.

When searching in the VRC knowledge base, I found, that it needs a full install of Solid Edge (API) to read the properties into the SWX PDM. Does anyone know ad hoc, if this is still the case in 2018? If so: does anyone know, why this is so limitated? 3D Interconnect reads native Edge properties into the resulting SLDPRT.

Hello Everyone, I would like to edit the "convert to jpeg task" in order to get the isometric view of part or assembly in the generated jpeg file.I don't have the right knowledge about programming or API and i need this automation for my company.I need your help thank you in advance. In the task properties, go to "Output File Details" in there you'll see "Advanced Scripting Options". The code in there is the code that actually opens the file and then saves it.

Anyone know where this option is in the Administration set-up for EPDM. I remember I had this turned on in the last system. Are you talking about Save and Check in as shown in the image?

On the creation of a new project/machine using a template the variables are not populating in the vault explorer columns. Why is this? They are shown in "View Values".

Currently when I search Where Used of a selected part file, I may receive many results. I then select each assembly and browse to in a new window. Then I select the Contains tab to see the contents of that particular assembly. One of the columns is the Configuration Name.
