DISPATCH: Exchanging Variables Between Parts

I'm currently setting up my EPDM vault and handling legacy data is an issue.


Here are the steps I am testing:

  • User drags a PART (pipe.sldprt) and DRAWING (pipe.slddrw) into the vault (the drawing has views of pipe.sldprt on it)
    • EPDM asigns the part a serial number B12345
  • The user then checks-in the parts (not keeping check-out)
  • The user selects the PART file and runs a rename dispatch script
  • The dispatch script renames the PART from pipe.sldprt to B12345.sldprt


So right now in my vault I have B12345.sldprt and pipe.slddrw.  I am stuck on how to take the variable B12345 from the PART and get it into the DRAWING file so that I can rename it to match the PART.
