          I'm wondering what the file system of PDM Works Enterprise uses. Is it a flat structure like the existing PDM? sequel?
          Also, how had transitioning been going for any existing PDM customers? Has a script been written on this yet?
          Thanks

            So no support for data migration between workgroup and enterprise besides consulting? ie. a batch loader.

              Hi Patrick -

              The metadata is stored in an SQL database. The files themselves are stored in Windows file folders on an Archive Server and are tpically only accessed via the application.

              Please note that the Enterprise product line is not included with SolidWorks, SolidWorks Office Professional or SolidWorks Office Premium. It is sold separately. You should speak with your VAR to understand what the product offers and transition paths.

              Regards,
              Joy
