    Serial Numbers in Enterprise PDM

    Raghavendra Bhagavan.S.M

      I was wondering how i could generate this kind of serial numbers for parts in SolidWorks Enterprise PDM ?

      Serial number is 10 Digits long... For Ex: 48 32 25 809 04.

      The only running numbers in these 10 digits are 809...in this case.
      It starts from 001 and till 999. Once it reaches 999 then 3rd & 4th Characters becomes 33. 5th & 6th Characters specifies the Part Family (ex: bush, Shaft etc.,)

      I could able to generate a flat file list using excel and created a new list.
      But the problem is it shows the whole list of numbers from 001 thru 999 and users are not forced to use a new serial number.

      In serial numbers i could get achieve this, but the problem i need to create many serial numbers based on the family Part. But how do i control the serial number based on the Part type.

      Your help would be highly apprieciated.

      Many thanks...
