I seem to recall that Deepak discovered that if you add "Punch ID" to the file yourself, that it won't keep adding its own version. There may have been some tricks about required spaces or some such. You might check out the threads in the "More Like This" box on the right or do a search on "Punch ID".
I appreciate your answer Jerry, unfortunately I did have to result to adding "PunchID" to my list and that did seem to work for now. I find it hightly irritating that SW would allow this known "bug" to continue wasting everyone's time. I'm very unhappy about this.
I am finding a similar problem. I will do above and see how that works.
I am trying to get users to link to the same properties file on the server and I get a warning, stating we don't have write access. although all of them have write access to the file and the root folder.
Ok... I just rewrote the properties and added the "punch ID" in the list.
I opened a part and opened properties the edit list was blank. I closed part opened another.. edit list.. "punch ID" was the only listed item. I looked at the location of the properties list that I made and a new Properties.txt has appeared...?
You need to add PunchID with no spaces.
I'm not sure why there is a new file but can you put the new and old list here.
