Is there a way of finding what assembles a part is used in within SolidWorks?
SolidWorks Explorer can be found in your Start menu.
If you have problems with it like some people, there is a tool at www.segerlabs.com that can find where used. It's called Rename and Replace, but you don't have to actually ececute the Rename and Replace part. Just use it to find where used.
Yes, use Solidworks Explorer. It has a where used funtion in it.
This is also the tool used to see inside of PDM's vault, but can be also
used without PDM as well.
Many thanks for your help folks.
Tried Solidworks explorer with little success but Rolands link does what I need
