Vault connections

First and foremost, thanks to everyone in these SW Forums. Im setting up PDMWorks and over the last 2 weeks, I think I've read every post in every subject on every topic - you get the idea. Thank you!!!


Is it possible to move a Part/Drawing file from a Development # to a Production # without breaking the connection?? In other words, I want this:


Part XXX-000 Rev 02 in the Development Folder under "Development" status

to become

Part XXX-XXX0-X0000 Rev A in the Production Folder under "Production" status


keeping the history of this part in tact.


Also - since it moved to Production the "Development" part is no longer. How do I "de-activate" it (perhaps read only)??






Note: I attempted this as a "Save As", but 2 problems arose. #1 it would NOT allow me to check the part in as a Rev A although I changed Status and Project Folder; #2 it has no history once I "Save As" (normal to anyone who has used SW for more than 2 days)          See the attached screen shots for my VaultAdmin setup
