Configurations and part numbers/file name

Hi,

 

I recently modified an existing part but we are still able to mould the old version of the part as well as the new version.

 

I have used the existing file with two configurations, showing the part as it was and showing the part with new features. The new part has got a new part number.

 

The old version has stayed on several assemblies untouched as it was, the new version is being used in several new assemblies.

 

The problem is that the file itself named the original part number, but the new configuration is a different part number.

 

I understand that you can show different part numbers on a BOM table using configurations, but is there a way to almost have TWO seperate files that are somehow linked so if you open either one it will open the same file in the confuguration you need?
