Today I was asked if it was possible to automatically change the value stored in the Description variable (of a SW part data card) when the file was renamed.
After giving it some thought, the answer for his situation was yes - it can be done by using a Dispatch utility (see attached).
I use Dispatch to do the rename operation by asking the user to supply the new filename. You will note that the dispatch utility does a bit of error checking as well (important if you are putting it in the hands of users :-)). I did not account for every possible usage error I'm sure - the key is to test, test and test again to ensure that any solution meets your needs.
p.s. This dispatch utility requires that you use EPDM 2010 (for the ability to write the filename to the data card)
