Search for Duplicate file names

Question asked by Russell Abraham on Jul 16, 2012

We have just started using EPDM after converting from DBWorks.

Historically we have PDF's of hand or 2D generated drawings and also 3D models and drawings.

If a part/assembly is required in a higher level assembly but a pdf of the 2D exists we would model it but not approve it.

Viewers can't see non approved models or drawings.

It is the engineer's responsibility when they redraw something on SolidWorks to obsolete the old version pdf. Typically they have the part number as the file name.

This, in some cases, is not happening.

I need to be able to quickly identify if this has not happened

 

Is there an easy way to search for file names that have duplicates but have different extensions?

 

Thanks
