    How do I change the Part Number of Renamed Parts in PDM Data Card?

    John Wayman

      I am using PDM Standard with Solidworks 2018, SP4.


      I have a Custom Property called 'Part Number ' set up in SW.

      The value of the Part Number Custom Property is set to:


      $PRP:"SW-File Name"


      When I check a new part into PDM, the custom properties appear in the data card,as expected.


      If I rename a part, the data card in PDM does not reflect the name change.


      The other custom properties seem to update on the data card, if I change them in SW.


      Is there a way, within Solidworks or PDM Standard, ideally automatically, but manually if not possible, to update my Part Number property in my PDM Standard data card following a rename of a SW part?


      I am not going to buy additional software to handle what should be straightforward within Solidworks or PDM Standard.
