We have our vault set up with about a dozen directories forvarious types of parts or assemblies. I tried to drag & drop anassembly file from one directory to another. It seemed to work, andit maintained the file relationships, but when I click on the datacard tab there's no card. If I move the file back to it's olddirectory the card pops right up.

Is it possible to show the path in the data card using PDM Std? Here is how I have it set up currently: I want the path in the card so that I can copy the path when I am importing or separating bodies to new files and saving them into the vault. Plus it's just a good reference if searching. SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm

For some reason, I can't get indented BOMs to drill down any further than the top level. I've tried checking out, saving, and checking back in both the top level and sub-levels making sure to set lightweight to resolved to no avail. Am I missing something here?

Does anyone have a SQL query or PDM report to search for files that have been recovered? Searching the history doesn't search the event description. SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm

I'm working in our EPDM workflow system. The current PDF creation during our Release state change is working perfectly. The only issue appears to be that it comes in as "Initial Check in" I want it to be our Released state. I cant seem to find any check mark box or value i can select to make it match the state of the part being released.

I have placed an ER request to have the ability to expand the menu to see all the columns and to give us the ability to add columns such as "description" to the destroy menu. If you agree, turn on in as well. ER# 1-19027176185 regards, Scott SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm

If we do all our sending files down the workflows with conditions of the workflows, what other benefits are there of setting up categories for different type of documents in PDM. SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm

The table ArchiveServerStored contains a column called ArchiveType. Does anyone know, what the types are? I think, type 1 are normal files and type 4 is the users.dat in the vault's root folder. But what are 2 and 3?

Good afternoon, have been testing data card input formulas nice feauture in some cases. However noticed interesting thing if i change input formula it doent reset. For example if i delete Edit Box it disapears when you press LMB on the file instanly, data card input formula doesnt reset even if you check out check in file. How do you resolve this if you have many parts?

Currently using PDM Pro 2017. Can't get pictures to open in Photos to allow easier scrolling/ viewing they want to open in Paint. Checked all my Windows settings they are defaulted to Photos. From my understanding this is a known issue.
