    Can $PARTNUMBER be linked to an EPDM variable

    Noel Witt

      The following question was asked via https://forum.solidworks.com/message/336419.

       

      Is it possible to link the $PARTNUMBER property to an EPDM Variable?

       

      The correct answer was:

      <answer>

      Yes. The instructions are in the Admin guide, but here are the quick steps...

       

      1. Go to variable mapping & select the variable you want linked to that property.
      2. In the "Block name" box, enter "SWCfgProperty"
      3. In the "Attribute Name" box, enter "BOMPartNumber"

      </answer>

       

      which, in fact, is supported by documentation. 

       

      However, My EPDM Admin (2012) does NOT appear to have the "Block Name" SWCfgProperty?  Nor does it contain the documented "Block Name" $PRP??

       

      Any idea what I'm missing or how to make those Block Names available?
