Some of our parts contain multiple configurations which have different BOM description (e.g. 10100001____part_widget) The BOM description is usually the configuration name, but can sometimes be user set, or can be document name

I am using Workgroup PDM from 2013 and Their are some files that I cannot rename. I can rename most of my files but sometimes I will get an error message that says "Could not rename document". Anyways this will be a big problem as manangement wants me to basically rename all my drawings to exactly match the names they have in their software. Does anyone know a way around this or why it won't let me rename them?

It's confusing between these 2 variables. Can someone here please explain? "Current state" is a special variable in PDM.

My company has never used saved BOMs or computed BOMs. Prior to EPDM our BOMs were just linked tables on our drawings, and we've continued to use that paradigm. Today, I'm trying to clear out some old, unused (so I'd thought) workflows, and to delete them I need to be sure there are no files that are or have ever been in any state in those workflows.

I have a simple question: Does Solidworks Manage work with PDM Standard, or is it only useful with PDM Pro?

Now that with 2018 WPDM will no longer work, how are you finding PDM standard compared to WPDM? Inexplicable issues where users cannot rename of delete files from PDM due to insufficient privileges. No explanations for this, the issue randomly appears and goes away.

On one user VaultView, all the options in the "Actions" is grey out - I already checked the "Checkout" in the folder and state permissions for this user Any idea what causes this?

At the (very real) risk of sounding foolish, I appear to have locked myself out of the PDM Vault which I am currently working on building. I still have access via the admin user account, however when I attempt to login using my individual user account I am told that ' The administrator has blocked your login name in this file vault'. I had access to this earlier today, so I know there is something I have changed accidentally but I have been unable thus far to determine what that was...

Use thePermissions per Foldertab of theFolder Permissionspage to give group members permissions to specific folders. You can also use theAssigned Folder Permissionstab to view and modify folder permissions. I read the help file and am confusing - what's the diff. ?

Sync network folder with vault Over the past few years we've migrated our CAD/engineering data to Solidworks and in particular PDM. We're at a point now where we are fairly well organised with our data and are confident that data is staying correct, unmodified and properly backed up.

Whenever I boot this machine from a cold boot and attempt to open vault, I never get the login box. I then right-click the "blueberry" and select "login". I then login but nothing, just a spinning circle. I then go to task manager and windows explorer says not responding.

I have created workflow with major and minor revisions. So I start at A-01. If the change means that the parts are still interchangeable then I can go to A-02 and our guys can just order the new issue next time they buy.

Can Multiple versions of Solidworks (2015-2018) work with a 2018 PDM Pro vault? We just upgraded to 2018 sp2 but have a few older projects that need to stay in older versions of Solidworks to be able to share data with customers. I'd prefer to keep these older projects in the vault.
