Renaming assembly - equations problem

Question asked by Brad Scollick on Jun 12, 2009

I have an assembly named "F0" that uses global variables. The global variables define the assembly's overall dimensions (depth x width x height).

Several of the inserted parts of the assembly have equations that are driven by the global variables e.g. "length"="width@F0.SLDASM"-64

I have found that if I copy the assembly and give it a different name, say F2, the assembly will not longer rebuild if I change the global variables. Looking at the parts equations I notice that they still reference to "F0" and not "F2" as I thought they would be. Now I have twenty or so equations that reference to the old assembly name. Shouldn't they update when I rename the file?

Is my method incorrect?
