Is there a way to assign drawing's ID to a pdf converted from it? I'd like to have same ID for part, drawing, converted pdf and converted step & x_t. In current setup pdfs get new ID and filename consisting of %ID%-%Description%-%Revision%.
It sounds like you want the files to have the same FileID from the PDM database, right?
If so, I don't think it's possible. Each file in PDM gets a unique identifier called DocumentID (or the ID you refer to). If this is what you're asking, it isn't possible.
Hope this helps,
Believe in The Q!
That simply does not sound right since sldasm and sldprt are two different files and have same ID.
The name can be the same. The id is always a different one.
My system uses similar ID for part/drawing and assy/drawing
It seems to be a problem of wording. The PDM DocumentID is a unique integer. It is not possible for this value to be ambiguous. The ID you are talking about is a variable that is assigned a value that does not have to be unique.
I see. How difficult is it to obtain the function I'm trying to achieve?
Can you use the File Card section of the convert task. The source variable comes from the file you are converting. The destination value goes to the data card of the new file.
