Can anyone explain this message to me?
The part contains NO external references
Does this mean there is a part or assembly out there that is referencing it? If so does anyone know which table this reference is contained in in SQL?
Looks like you have a gauge table that cannot be found. try un-selecting "gauge table". this could also be that it is not cached in your side OR it may be referencing a different folder or vault called OXBO_PROD.

You may also run the simulation cleaning utility just in case there are orphaned studies:
Typically found in: C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\Simulation\Utilities
Are there any broken or out of context features in the part?
Can you Attach the part?
Nothing at all I can see...
Looks OK, loads fine in my PDM.
Have you tried the PDM Update References Wizard?...prob. wont show anything either
There are no <x> or <?> next to any features in the feature tree?
Nothing. I attached the part
Check this setting....
Nothing in the PDM reference, and same option setting.
Interesting once you check it out and back in the message goes away - (no other changes?)
Was it saved/created from another part?
That I do not know
Is there an embedded ole object, txt file driving equations, design table, bend table, etc??
I believe I have seen this issue before and I think Nadia is on the right track. We have an SPR that may be related; SPR 804419 is still open and looks like a match with your issue. Please note that in PDM 2017 and 2018 this warning might incorrectly show 'local file has been overwritten' if change state is done via RMB in add-in tree (see SPR 1077565- Fixed in 2018 Sp4). I tested this in PDM 2019 Sp1EV and I am seeing the message when I attempt to change state. I would recommend speaking with your VAR and requesting attachment to this SPR.

You file does contain a cut list and cut lists are monitored by PDM so this could be the external item being referred to. I am not a PDM expert though.
All - thank you for the help - it is an older part and referencing a bend table we no longer use.
