I would like to add a link or attachment to an assembly of a drawing so that others will understand that one drawing covers multiple assemblies. Can I do this? Glenn J.
The database capability of WPDM is limited (it's more of an excel spreadsheet) out of the box. You can use the API to expand it's functionality but it will still be limited.
In the SW/WPDM world, the drawing is on the lower rung of the ladder. In order to place a SW drawing in the WPDM vault, it needs to be placed under a part or assy. The drawing does not build the part or assy, it only references the items/features on them.
You can query the "where used" & "references" tabs by right-clicking a file in the vault and choosing "document info" but it provides limited info.
You could just place a note on the drawing, but it would not provide for automatic updates. You could possibly place a link in a document in the "design binder" but I have had problems with hyperlinks there.
