Break drawing references (EPDM)

Hello all,

 

I've been experiencing an annoying problem with EPDM where I have parts calling up drawings that are no longer used.

Please see below for example:

Part 230977 shows three drawings referencing it and the problem is that drawing 230783 at version 1 referenced this part but now no longer needs too and I can't seem to break this link.

  • I have tried rolling back the drawing but it can only be rolled back to version 1 which still has the reference.
  • I cannot delete the drawing as we have a finite set of numbers that is assigned by EPDM.
  • This causes the biggest headache when approving parts as it will call up all 3 drawings and drawings that are just spare numbers are getting approved.

Hope this makes sense,

Thanks,

Matthew
