I'm digging around in the PDM Standard (EPDM) setting trying to figure out how to set some properties that will help users fill in the data-cards. Since the back end of this is sql there should be a way to set up a mask for the database fields so that users need to enter them in a specific way. I would like to set the mask for part number because we are trying to bring different number systems together and i would like to make it more difficult to incorrectly fill in some fields on the form.
You can. I have used it for naming conventions. Drop down lists which are controlled by previous lists. (controlled by variable) This went from numerous ways people were naming purchased parts into a structured naming convention. I guess I would need more info as to how you want to format (pic).
