    Auto Revision Excel Properties

    Jason Capriotti

      I have a revision variable setup for drawings, it automatically changes the value when a drawing is released.

       

      The problem is Excel, when it changes from its to the final revision of the release, it updates the revision property fine. This in turn is linked to a named cell in Excel. When opened in Excel it looks fine. When viewed in the built in previewer........its still the interim revision.

       

      So the built in viewer is not showing the updated cell. This is automatic property change and transition......how can this be updated?

          Yup, that is a limitation of the viewer - the preview will always look like the file did when it was last saved. (Enhancemnet request time!)

           

          I know of only two options: Teach your users to not trust those cells in the viewer that are linked to properties, or open the file, save it then close it. (This can be done via customization.)
