To the best of my knowledge, Workgroup PDM doesn't have a method to search by Date Modified. (I.e. I want to know what files were checked-in between these two dates.) I needed to do this during my upgrade to PDM Standard recently and found the method below to be a reasonable hack. It's not perfect, but it produced the results that I needed. I'd love to hear about improvements or alternatives, as it looks like I might be keeping Workgroup PDM around for a little longer than I had anticipated.

It's a shame that workgroup is going away because we use it for such limited but necessary functions. All we basically need it for is to work collaboratively without stepping on each others toes. The taking ownership and releasing parts and checking in and out functionality is all we really need. We don't use it much for rev control or workflow checks.

SOLIDWORKS 2018 and later will not support SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM. Will you be migrating to EPDM? Are there any other good options?

I have been pulling my hair out on this issue for some time now. Here is the story. I have just recently upgraded some of my machines to Solidwors 2017 sp2. With that the engineers use Solidworks Explorer to access workgroup PDM.

Can anyone tell us their experience from going from Workgroup to GrabCad? Does it have a way to set-up an approval system? Can you migrate your files from Workgroup? Is it worth the cost saving using GrabCad and not moving up to Enterprise PDM?

Just updated to 2017 and would like to use the Workgroup PDM, but we only have 2 guys that will be using PDM. our network is basic and setup like a home network. We have no servers and am wondering where the best place would be to setup the vault, on my machine or his machine? any ideas? I have never setup PDM but used to work for a company that used PDM but had servers and about 300 users.

I've recently upgraded to Solidworks 2017 but the company I work for runs their PDM Workgroup off a 2016 licence. I get a warning message anytime I try to connect with it saying: "Your software is newer than the SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM Server.

When I check out documents from Workgroup PDM, sometimes the custom property 'type' field is cleared for all properties. This subsequently blanks out the 'values' and I need to manually enter them back in. The document properties appear okay in the vault, unless I forget to enter them back in (in which case only the PDM defaults of revision, author, project, etc. get populated). My colleagues don't have this issue when working with the same documents, and it seems to happen more often with

I am getting an error while running a MS Excel based Workgroup PDM VBA macro, which is to get the list of files stored in Workgroup PDM. This was working till last week, until we switched from SolidWorks 2015 to SolidWorks 2016. The API at which is failing is while creating a connection object, Set connection = CreateObject("PDMWorks.PDMWConnection").

We are in the process of acquiring a company who uses Workgroup PDM. We have run into an issue while trying to acquire the intellectual property. They have two vaults that they kept their data in. One vault (I will call this one Vault 1) we took possession of and the other vault stays with the former parent company (I will call this Vault 2).

I was thinking of transferring our Default templates (title blocks, rev templates, etc.) to the vault so that write access is no longer available. The snag is that I can't seem to set the path for the file locations under the options tab to point to the vault. Is there any way to do this? Thanks for the help.
