    Local Revision = No Revision on Check in.

    Jason Mullen

      Using Enterprise PDM 2011.  How do I ensure that a checked in file always has a Revision set under Local Revision. 

      Local Revision meaning the one that shows on the Version Tab.  The same Local Revision that has to exist so that a Task's Output File Details show correctly.  If the Local Revision = No Revision, then when I make a PDF using the Convert Task with the Default path set to:
      <Path>\PDF\<Filename>_ REV<Revision>

      An example output is:

      C:\PDF\Part_REV

      If Local Revision has a value (say 3A), then the output would be:
      C:\PDF\Part_REV3A

       

      I have figured out how to set this value whenever I change states (by setting variables and Incrementing Revisions) during the transisition.  However, either during initial check in or modifing a file at a state and checking it back in, the Local Revision changes to No Revision.

       

      I can manually fix this by selecting the file and Modify\Increment Revision, but this means it's not going to get done.

       

      How do I set it so that anytime I check in a file, that Local Revision value stays set?

       

      Examples when looking at Actions\Get Version

       

       

      1. <Created>          In this case the file was checked in, No Revision and created PDF is incorrect.

       

      5. <No Comment>     Checked out, saved, Checked in.

      1.00                         Changed State and set Revision during transition.

      4. <No Comment>     Checked out, saved, Checked in.

      -.00                         Manually incremented revision.

      3. <No Comment>     Versions 1-3 were created by Check out, save, Check in.

      2. <No Comment>

      1. <Created>

      In this example, versions 1,2,3 (before manually incrementing revision) and 5 output the wrong filename when a PDF is made.

       

      Again, how do I set it so that anytime I check in a file, that Local Revision value stays set?
