In EPDM, how do I set up link between variables of two different file data cards? I want to bring in ECO# from my ECO data card (doc) to DWG file data card (slddrw).
Hi Imtiaz, it's not possible just out of the box (apart from transferring values from a SolidWorks part/assembly to a SolidWorks drawing. However if you are using PDM Professional, you can utilize the Dispatch functionality to transfer variables from any one file to another.
See the attached files for instrucitons on how to achieve this. To access the Dispatch add-in and load it into your vault, follow the instructions in the Administration Guide (in the PDM Admin tool, Help, Administration Guide)
Thanks for your reply. I will this option.
Not able to find any files attached, can you please repost?
Hi Imtiaz, the files were attached in my last post, perhaps if you send me your email in a private message, I can emial them to you.
Can you help in writing a dispatch to link variable from part file to drawing file?
But only condition is part file and drawing file both have different file names.
Thanks and regards,
Hi Hrishikesh, sorry for the late reply to this.
Please see attched a Dispatch action file (.acn) that should achieve this. The only catch is that you have to enter the full path of the file to be updated minus the extension.
For example: C:\PDMVAULT\Draw1
Hope this helps
Thanks for providing solution.
But I did not get any attached file.
Hi Hrishikesh, think it's a problem with the file upload.
Can you see if you can download from here: transfer value to another file.acn - Google Drive
