Folks,  New to Solidworks and Driveworks but am getting there...slowly.  Here's the problem.  I've created a driveworks project that suppresses and unsuppresses parts in my assembly dependent upon length and width of channel and midsections.  It was working fine when I suppressed the extrude feature of the parts, but then the part kept showing up in the BOM.  So I suppressed the part file if it wasn't needed.  Well that fixed the problem with the BOM, but it now ignores all the dimension rules that are in place for those parts that aren't suppressed.  I've looked at the code and can't figure it out.  It suppresses the correct part files, just ignores the dimension code. Totally confused.  Does suppressing the file negate the dimensioning code for the unsuppressed parts... is it the order of operations, etc.
