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
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?
I'm not sure if this will do the trick or not, but Make your Card Variable your serial number and see if that works.
Yep, that was it. Thanks!
