I don't think it's possible without the using the workflow Transition > Action > Set Variable to pull the current Version value and write it to a data card variable. In PDM Professional you can use Dispatch which could run outside of workflow transition, but you don't have access to that in PDM Standard. Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't see where you can do this.
Hi Toke, Steve is correct, the only way you can get a variable like Version number is use a workflow transition Set Variable action to pull the version number into the file datacard, and then map it to a custom property.
That doesn't work in PDM standard either, because I want the same option in our data cards... when I try to add an action Version is not in the list, even when I manually add it to the Variables. Any other suggestions for PDM Std?
