Please give a bit more information, like:
I updated the original post with some more information - thanks for any help you can provide
I don't see anything unusual. Have you tried not checking out the file?
I have a feeling this behavior is related to configurations and whether or not the variables are set to update all configurations.
Thanks Tim - I had the same thought but have not been able to find any cause related to configs.
All the datacard fields are setup to update all configs
In the Dispatch variable setting dialogs, the config box is blank. As I interpreted that to mean "all configs"
All of this has been on an AutoCAD dwg file. I have tried this on a Solidworks part file and all the variables populated.
So that leads me back to the variable definitions and the attribute settings for AutoCAD.
It baffles me why this would have an impact - but it seems to.
At this point, I have spent way too much time trying to debug something which should be so simple.
So I throw my hands up in dispair and move on.
Thanks for everyone's input.
I would still like to see an answer, i have a similar problem
