Custom Column in PDM Standard Not Shown

Good Afternoon All,

I just recently updated to Solidworks 2016 SP4 and I noticed my custom column in the PDM Standard doesn't show up in Windows Explorer any more.

I have a simple custom column set created in the PDM admin tool with a new column for my Description variable. Prior to SP4 the Description column displayed fine in my vault view in Windows Explorer. Now it won't show up at all. I've tried deleting the column from the admin tool and re-adding it, deleting the entire custom column set and re-creating that from scratch, refreshing my vault view, logging out of the vault view and logging back in...yet my description column still will not come back.


Has anyone else noticed this with PDM Standard and SW 2016 SP4? I'm just about ready to file a bug report to SW, but I figured I'd ask here first in case I'm missing something silly.


Below are some screenshots of my column settings and vault view.

If anyone can supply some guidance on this, that would be great.
