when I click to create a new assembly, it opens a previous one which i have created.How to i stop this from happening
It appears that at some point you've started a new Assembly, inserted the Steering Bearing Tube Part, and then saved the Assembly as an Assembly Template. Go ahead and click on "Suppress all missing components" to open the new Assembly. Delete the suppressed components from the tree. Make any other changes you want to apply to future Assemblies (at Tools > Options > Document Properties). Go to File > Save as... and save as Assembly Template (.asmdot).
You can save it to the default location if you want, but I'd suggest saving it somewhere other than in the SolidWorks installation folder, either elsewhere on your C-drive, or on a network drive if that's applicable. That way if you've made some changes to it at some point you won't lose your custom template if you upgrade to a newer version of SolidWorks. Now, go to Tools > Options > System Options > File Locations > Document Templates. Delete the existing location and point to the location where you saved the template.
Finally, the next time you start a new Assembly, click on the Advanced button. That will bring up another dialog box where you can select your saved template, assuming the steps above were followed correctly.
Thanks a lot, really helped
You must have saved the assembly as assembly template accidentally instead of assembly file. Start a new assembly, delete everything you don't need and then re-save as assembly template (overwriting existing one).
Hey, Thanks a lot solved the problem
