I am able to run the convert task only by using the task list in PDM administration and it is working the way I want it to.

I would like to discuss how others keep their BOMs accurate and in line with other file management systems.  How you deal with discontinued parts.  How you deal with Sloppy or messy PDM vaults that you have taken over. How you deal with Assemblies containing standard parts as well as Raw materials as it relates to the BOM.   I want to hear from… (Show more)
