Why do I get Sheet<1> and/or Cut-List-Item1 as a child reference to parts at check in?
Also why do these always show local file is modified?
Starting with SOLIDWORKS Enterprise 2009, when checking in a multi-body weldment part, all weldment components (cut list items) will be extracted and listed as internal (virtual) references to the part. This way it is possible to generate a weldment bill of materials or cut list from the part.
If you wish you can turn it off but PDM does not longer generate weldment bill of materials or cut list. Let's check S-048403.
If you always see that local file is modified, let's check your part or SW settings. May cut list is rebuilded so PDM sees that file has changed and displays that local file is modified.
