I need to replace one of the components in the drawing file so what I did was go to the parts file and replaced the component. Now the drawing file has a (?) where the component is suppose to appear. Is this fixable?
Go back to the parts file and put the files back like they were. Open the drawing, and hopefully the references are okay. Now use the "Replace Model" function like I said in the other Discussion. In case it wasn't clear, you do that by right-clicking on the drawing view in the Drawing.
Thanks for the response.
My goal is not to put any files back, all I want to do is change a specific component in the parts file(which I did). Now I need it to reflect in the drawing file but it's not.
As I said in your other post either post the file here or do a screen shot of the Assembly and one of the drawing to show the part missing. This would clear up some of the confusion going on.
Can you please clarify something? My impression is that you've replaced a component in an Assembly, you have a drawing view (or views) of the original component in a Drawing, and you want to replace these drawing views with drawing views of the new component?
If yes, unless these components are very similar, such as the original component was saved to a new name and then modified, you might was well just go ahead and bite the bullet and delete the original drawing views and insert new ones of the new component.
Yes Glenn, that is virtually what I am saying. Are you indicating that the drawing folder will not update after I save the parts file?

That's right. Although I'm not real sure what you mean by "save the parts file".
