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 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

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?

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?

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).

This is easily accomplished using string functions and variables. p.s. the OK Messagebox statements are for debugging/development/teaching purposes only - feel free to remove them.

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?

I have recently set up some SQL maintenance tasks on my PDM pro server. I am running check database integrity and rebuild index. I did a test run last night and when I checked SSMS this morning it reported that the duration was 00:02:03. I am interpreting that as two minuets and three seconds.

Is there a way, within Solidworks or PDM Standard, ideally automatically, but manually if not possible, to update my Part Number property in my PDM Standard data card following a rename of a SW part? I am not going to buy additional software to handle what should be straightforward within Solidworks or PDM Standard.

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?

We just upgraded SOLIDWORKS and I plan on using the PDM file version upgrade tool to upgrade our files. What is the best practice when doing this, meaning which settings do most people use? - Overwrite existing version

I do migrations as a service as well as many other VARs. If you only want latest version, it’s not too hard of a process to do on your own (in some specific cases). Be prepared for creating duplicates. It really depends on how much you have.

In the left treeview you have the solidworks files and subfolder like in windows explorer. if you select a file in the left treeview it will show you in the right treeview in wich files it's used (Every time you selec a node in the right treeview it will show the parent file)

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.

Here's my scenario. In my PDM data card for SolidWorks files I have a variable named "Part Number" and it's default value is "File Name without extension" obviously windows doesn't allow a slash in a part number, hence the underscore.

Also, in the output file name, are you using a variable caleed Revision, or the Source file revision? (which are two different things) When a part gets approved through the workflow, it goes to Rev A. After doing this, I use the Convert to PDF task.
