I think your problem is related to the file data card. We use PDWE 2008 and in this version there is no solution to map a variable to "custom.." or "conf specific". In the file data card editor make sure that the variable field have "Update all configurations" unchecked. We have a lot of parts with many configurations (DT) and values for variables are configuration specific and are filled from the file. A common example is the mass of the part.
Yes it works for variable that by default blank in the initial check in.
But it will not work for variable like :
- Project Name that come from folder variable, etc.
So there is no setting to make variable mapping to custom poperties only or to a specific configuration ?
Thank You !!!!
