I would like SW PDM Pro to omit certain files from conversions?

Is there any way I can stop the conversion of a file to PDF or parasolids based on the name of the file?  I would like to stop files that end in "00.sldasm" being sent to the convert to PDF task.  I have looked through the convert script, but it seem if the file does not get made by the initiated task it fails the task all together.

 

Also because we make a lot of parasolids conversions files that have no model data fail this task.  Occasionally we will have a consumable like glue or a part that just doesn't require the overhead of a model and when run through the task to create parasolids files the task fails.  I can't think of a way to handle this without checking for the mass of a component or something like that...?
