Is the "Updates all configurations" flag enabled on all of your file data card controls?
Yes Michael. ...and thanks for responding :-)
I was told that the @ tab is accurate and to not take the data on Sheet1 tab seriously. Apparently there are open issues around this.
This is a current limitation of the Sheet tabs for a SolidWorks drawing file where the Update all configurations setting doesn't propagate values to the sheet tabs. This is something we want to add to the product.
Thanks Kurt -- confirmation helps.\
Also, data card values that are populated using a drop down or yes/no variable will fill out on all configurations regardless of Kurt's setting. There is an SPR to work around this problem, I cannot remember or find it tho...
Something nasty is going on...
- create a drawing of a part
- save the part
- variables on the drawing card read part and folder variables correctly
- check the drawing in, transition updates the drawing data card
- check the drawing out again
- hit save
- a bunch of data card variables are trashed!
Variables still appear in properties list in SW, but all the data is blank.
SW and EPDM 2015 SP4
All variables set to update all configurations
Drawing template is SW basic template with no PRP vars
Any ideas would be most welcomed.
