    Filename as serial number does not match

    Grant Kirkland

      Using SW PDM 2017 I want to make the filename of a newly create part to be match the part number generated by a serial number, but for some reason the filename is not matching the part number.


      I followed this tutorial: 2016 SOLIDWORKS PDM Help - Using Serial Numbers to Automatically Name Files


      My process:


      Create a serial number:

      Create a variable in the template wizard:

      Add part template file in the template wizard:

      Set part number as file name:

      Part number set a "Partnumber" serial number in part card:

      File name is "P-00001" but Part Number is "P-00005". Why is this?
