    How to change filename of DriveWorksXpress output files

    Kray Shivers

      Hello All,


      I am new to DriveWorksXpress so bare with my through this question.

      The model i am using to start the data base is named JJ-000-000, this is our specific numbering system for assemblies and that type of name is what the output file should look like. So during my test i created a field in to form call "Item Number" and input the value "XX-001-001". through all of the rules i set up the group of files should have been named the following.







      But what i get is JJ-000-000XX-001-001. with in the filename rules how do i delete the master filename and replace it with the item number as the file name?

          Hi Kray.

          In answer to your question about deleting the Master Model name out of the file name in DriveWorksXpress, the way to do this is to add "*" to your file name rules.
          I think in your case this would be = "*" & "Item Number"

          In the enclosed images i wanted my file name to be Order Number-Customer, where both values are an input on my form. My Master Model is called Magazine Rack.
          My file name rule is:
          ="*" &OrderNumber & "-" & Customer


          Hope this helps.
