Query to check if a variable is mapped (material) ?

Hello,

 

I have an issue with some of my parts :

we had some parts that don't have the material property link to the SolidWorks material, this property is mapped to our datacard in PDM.

It work well with our new model, but with old part, OR if the user FORCE by and the value of the property, we loose the link with the SolidWorks material.

 

This is good :

If I change the material in my part in SolidWorks, the "Matériau" ('Material' for who don't speak baguette) property will update.

 

This is not :

If I change the material in my part in SolidWorks, the property don't update... and I can order the wrong material.

 

 

Is there a way (via query on the report generator) to see if a variable is linked to the SolidWork material ?

I was hopping to check the ValueText and the ValueCache fields of the variablevalue table, but the fields are the same, linked or not.

Any idea?
