Change states Not well versed in PDM Professional, I prematurely changed the state of a drawing from released to revised. Is there any way I can recall/resend, take that back to the original previous released state?

My co-worker and I have the task of transcribing a big set of electrical diagrams into SWE. It sure seems like there's a way that we can both be working on the same project at the same time and have it save and update between the two computers so that we can collaborate. I'm having trouble finding where to start on getting this to work.

I'm having an issue with an SQL database search used to make a list in a template card. The list mostly works, however I'm getting some extra data in their that I don't want. We have many project folders, each with many files within. I want to get a list of all of the "Client" variables specified in the various project folders.

I am a student working in High School and used the in-browser free trial of Solidworks, I was able to save some part and assembly files to my desktop but upon the ending of the trial I strangely can't find the files anywhere~ I would like to take the files for later and was wondering if there is any help I could get on retrieving them. Thanks! Who were you in contact with for the trial?

So basically my company won't allow databases applications to run on the servers we use as our file storage share drive that gets routinely backed up, which is obviously on the company domain. I had to work around this by installing PDM on a server not managed by the company that is in our office, and is not connected to the domain. We figured out a way to route it through the office's network (long story).

My users commonly use Copy Tree to copy an existing file in PDM, while simultaneously renaming it, and overwrite another existing file within the PDM. An undesired outcome is that the history is replaced on the file that is overwritten. Is there a setting to change this?

EPDM Explorer Item Tabs Disappeared, need help. Is there a option to turn these off/on? Loggin onto his account on another computer allows visibility of these tabs, and deletion/recreation of the vault view did not resolve the issue?

As part of our Solidworks upgrade from 2017 to 2019, I was hoping that our data update using the Upgrade Tool would also pass properties in our drawings and parts to their associated datacards. I updated the datacards to include additional properties, so when we did our PDM upgrade & version upgrade, all of the data would be populated. Since it appeared that the tool was simply checking out parts, saving them, then checking the files back into the vault. When you do this manually, you get a

At this time there is no way to filter out Dispatch Actions so that they only show for some Users or Group, or so that they only display in certain folders.... There are no more other opportunities to make still some Dispath Actions settings for each specific host or by means of API/Add-ins or Registry or in a different way?

One way I think would work would be to place file path links, to the PDFs I want to send, into the EPDM Part datacard; this data is sent to ERP. Would need some combination of add-in/manual connecting the PDFs to the parts. Very open to suggestions.

We have been having something interesting happening when we do "copy tree's". Like many others, we have our model data card correlate it's data to the drawing data card, and have all of our fields on our drawing data card set to "read only" that way we aren't having to double up on typing information. When we do copy tree's, we change our part number, description, etc. to be the new file we want it to be. However, we have been noticing that info from the old part sometimes continues to live on

I am asking for your help with how to up my game with regards to being a PDM Administrator. I have taken all the courses our VAR offers and am plenty comfortable with tweaking workflows and users/groups after an implementation by our VAR, but I want to learn more! Basically, I want to get to an application engineer level of understanding so I can do my own implementations from scratch. I am a CAD Administrator with 20+ years of CAD experience and a CIS degree so I know I'm capable, I just can't

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?

Yes, you can do it with Dispatch, however, I typically caution against using Dispatch for automation as there is no 'error handling'. (Like in .NET try...catch...etc) Also, it can be daunting for a support person to figure out what is going on when trying to troubleshoot other issues.

We have had several users try to check in a shared file only to find out that this function cannot be done unless you do it from the folder that you check it out from. My understanding is that you should be able to work on the file and either check it in our out no matter which folder it was check in/out from. I also understand that Dassault has known of this failure in the functionality but has not come up with a solution yet. Has anyone else had problems with this feature?
