SW 2019 & PDM File Version Upgrade Tool - Not updating Datacards

As part of our Solidworks upgrade from 2017 to 2019, I was hoping that our data update using the Upgrade Tool would also pass properties in our drawings and parts to their associated datacards.  I updated the datacards to include additional properties, so when we did our PDM upgrade & version upgrade, all of the data would be populated.  Since it appeared that the tool was simply checking out parts, saving them, then checking the files back into the vault.  When you do this manually, you get a property update to the datacards.  It appears that does NOT happen when you use the upgrade tool.  I'm told by my VR that apparently, "FVUT" is not triggered with the tool.  I have no idea what this is, but is there a way of doing this that isnt painstakingly manual, or require me to shell out more to my VR for script development, etc?


Expedience on reply would be greatly appreciated.  I'm trying to get through this upgrade ASAP!


Thank you.
