show which files are missing or suppressed

Sometimes, when I check out a legacy assembly from Workgroup PDM, SW tells me that certain files are going to be suppressed, because it could not find the file. That's OK, I know how to fix it and I can do so.

However, sometimes, particularly if the missing parts are in sub-assemblies, it does not tell me, it just goes ahead and suppresses them. Then, I am not aware that they are suppressed, unless I happen to notice that a part I was expecting to show up on screen does not.

 

Is there a way of interrogating SW to give me a list of all the missing or suppressed files in a given assembly, right down through all the sub-assemblies and piece parts?

 

I'm sure it's very easy, but I can't work it out...

Thanks,
