I have an assembly that has a missing file reference until I open it in Solidworks. Once the file is open the file shows up and the reference. Has anyone else encountered this?
After working with my VAR and SW this is caused by a bug in SW. Here is the sequence of events that causes it to happen.
1. Open a file from an assembly.
2. Make it dirty (Make SW think it has changed.) The * will show up by the file name at top of the page.
3. Close the file.
4. When prompted to save say no.
5. When asked if you would like to discard changes in the assembly select discard changes.
6. Under File/Find references the part that was opened is missing.
A rebuild or save makes no difference the file is only restored if you reopen it. If the assembly is checked in the reference will be missing in EPDM. Has anyone else seen this? Seems like this could cause problems for more than just us.
The SPR# for this is 744970.
you are using EPDM correct?
if so, this can happen if that part has been rolled back to remove the last referenced version from that assembly. the user does get a warning to this effect when they attempt the roll back.
We are using EPDM and we don't give our users permission to rollback. The part has only been accessed by one user and I went over just to verify and he wasn't able to roll it back.
have you looked at the history of the part file?
Yes it doesn't say anything about rollback. I thought it would but wasn't sure if it would or not.
ok- I am out of ideas (yes, a roll back is shown in the history).
I just got an email saying it is implemented in 2015 A1. In my opinion a year is to long to wait. Now what!
