For now, I'm using filenames to store the part number. But I have a problem:
I can check in a 123456.sldprt and also a 123456.sldasm into the vault with no warning.
Is there a simple way how I could prevent this?
I talked already with my VAR but they don't have a simple solution other than using two different numbering schemes for parts and assemblies. But I would rather keep my PN scheme the same for parts and assemblies.
How do you make sure you don't check a file with the same PN into the vault twice?
p.s. I would even rather see that the custom property "PN" gets checked for duplicates, not the filename itself. The value for PN is directly linked to the filename for all custom-made parts, but in the case of fasteners, the PN is stored under the custom property "PN" directly....there is no link between the filename and the PN custom property.
