Trying to use dispatch to create a file when another file changes state, and I want to know if I can automatically create a file reference from the original. Current workflow looks like this: 1) Anyone can create a change request.  Handled through a template. File name is a serial number. 2) Engineering reviews request and either approves or… (Show more)

When we create a new slddrw we would like to run the task "create PDF" automatically. When running this task we would like to overwrite the existing PDF hardcopy when creating a new one.

I have… (Show more)

Hello,    We are looking to implement a process in the PDM we cannot figure out how to realize. Our drawings and parts have different revisions, so that we can change a drawing without changing the part (drawing depends on the part but part does not depend on the drawing). But, we don't currently force in the PDM that a drawing be transitioned… (Show more)

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.

Click to view contentI have weired problem. I have Solidworks PDM in use and should find a document. I know it is there, I know it's name, but how can I find it? Where is the search -button in PDM-window?     If I navigate to PDM by windows explorer, there is a search, but only for Engineering Search and that doesn't include search by name. Am I missing something?… (Show more)
