Have you enabled, the default overwrite check box for the variable in the file data card ?
Thanks for the reply. Yea, I've tried it with both enabled and disabled and it still doesn't update. I tested it by
- Creating a solidworks file in the vendor directory which populates the "QA Appr Status" variable from the Folder Data Card Variable
- Changing the Vendor Folder Data Card value for "QA Appr Status" to something different
- Checking if the QA Appr Status variable on the solidworks file has made the change to the new value that should be inherited from the folder data card
I've also tried with the SW file both checked in and not checked in.
Apparently It reads the variable from folder data card only during file addition event. That's what the helpfile says.
May be you may have to write a small dispatch to set variable before checking in the file.
You can go to modify tab and select "update value".this way you can propogate values into already created files.You eed to have all the files checked out uder that folder.
That will do, Thanks Ravi!
