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

So today was interesting. I discovered that notifications from PDM were not being sent to users in over3 weeks. Upon discovering that, I restarted the Database Server and boom, all hell broke lose - sending all those stored emails. Crazy how no one told me they were not getting any notifications - when they are moving items in the vault on ahourlybasis.

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.

I have a couple of questions. I think the login screen popping up when you open Explorer or when windows starts is due to the vault folder being in the Quick access folder.

I am trying to figure out what the ramifications of moving from SolidWorks PDM Pro 2016 to Solidworks PDM Standard 2017 could be for my company. With the addition of PDM to the SolidWorks Premium setup it I am looking to save some cash seeing as we only leverage the vault right now and have no prospects of integrating the other features into our work. Not necessarily the right way to do it, but I am trying to be realistic about usage and budgets.

I have a standalone in-house app I am creating that needs to query EPDM-SQL. I need to hand in an EPDM users name and have it hand back to me all ECO files (we prefix the files name with ECO) and the description that goes along with each file. I know this data comes from the Documents and VariableValue tables. I have used this call with some success - it returns all users with ECO's and the description.

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).

Using EPDM SW2017 SP1, when I try to create a new vault view, the archive server is no longer found automatically: I can add it manually, but this is new behavior despite the fact that I haven't changed anything. Same results on two different clients.

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?

Need to get a STL version of a solidworks file. However, the file obtained by directly SAVE AS a STL file is just unacceptable. The mesh quality is just too bad no matter how you tune the parameters in the conversion menu.

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.

My company has had PDM for a while now. The problem I'm having is that a whole product line was completely designed outside of PDM. When files are copied to PDM and distributed to the correct folder we have put in place, they are still referencing the file location to the parts in the folder that is outside of PDM. To save a huge amount of time not wanting to re-reference every single assembly file, what is correct way to import files to PDM?

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.
