If you are looking to add an empty column that you can add data to later in Excel, make a dummy variable and add it to the BOM column set. If you want a calculated value, you won't be able to do this with the search tool, you'll need to make a report. You can easily set the date using an action to set a "date" variable during a transition.

When I copy project (assambly and components) through tamplate (with rename of file) , can’t get updated component references. Is it possible to automate updating links to new components? I use variable "projectNumber" for rename files.

I checked-out an assembly with all its components. Then I opened the assembly and selected all parts via the left tree structure. I changed the material of all the parts via the custom prop. tab. I saved the assembly.

OK, new to SW PDM and haven't yet had any formal training. I have an O-Ring and it has a data card. I really need to show this ring in an assembly but show it as the shape in which is different than the O, it becomes an egg shape. I know I can make two paths in SW to represent the shape but wouldn't the egg shaped version create me another data card?

Our users are asking if it is possible to preset a datacard to search for a specific filetype like you can preset a datacard to search in a specific place. They want to search only on a filename and not a type for instance if they search for S23500-01 they only want to see the PDF file and not the parts and assembly for this specific order.

I want to move assembly files from one vault to another vault on a PDM server. What is the best way to do this, and have all required files move over with the assembly - without having to open each part and doing a save as operation? If PDM - Standart - can be tried - (if you have SolidWorks Explorer) - the context menu functions - Copy or Move.

I am trying to replace our .doc type ECO documents with a PDF form I am creating in Adobe LifeCycle designer ES2. Our existing .doc files pre-populate with information from the custom properties (such as ECO number, department, initiator, etc.) which is written by EPDM and linked to the data card. However, with the PDF form I cannot find a way to link the custom property information directly to a text field. I have tossed around the idea of linking to a separate XML file or OLEDB database, but

We are looking into the easiest way to let people in our company view our engineering drawings. We are planning to start creating PDFs of our released drawings and allowing people to be able to access them via the web and wifi. My company is new to PDM, but we are ready to install PDM Standard and start using it. We plan to auto-generate PDFs of our drawings when they're released.

My understanding is if I add the CustomProperty attribute seen below, it should write the "Chiller_rev" value to the "rev" field on the PDF everything I transition the file to a released state. I've done all of this and it's not sending any information to the PDF. I feel like I am missing a step, but I can't find anything online that helps out.

We're having a randomly occuring issue with saving SW Assembly files into the vault. This is what's been happening: after creating an assmebly and going through the SAVE AS process, my engineers have noticed that randomly not all of these files are actually being saved into the vault, rather they're existing in a hidden local state (which you only discover, after flipping the SEE ALL FILES in the Admin tools). There doesn't seem to be any particular reason why some files SAVE AS just fine into

I want to be able to pull part parameter information into applications directly from the SW database. For instance, via ODBE, I would like to type in a part number (one parameter) and the part description, and revision get pulled into the application automatically. I want to do this first with excel. Then, I am planning to develop API or use access as an intermediary, to do this data pull.
