Do you have a special workflow for migrated data? Does it look something like this:
New Set Revision function
These workflows aren’t necessary anymore with the new Set Revision function in SOLIDWORKS PDM 2016.
Let’s take a look…
In this example, all the data cards have the appropriate revisions and need to be synced with the systems revisions, so they increment appropriately when transitioned through the production workflow.
Select all the files you would like to sync, then via explorer go to Modify > Set Revision:
Right-click > Select All
Right click within the grid and select Set All New Revision Values To Card Variable Value
Note: you can also add a comment to this process.
Click OK then: review the data
Now the data card revisions will match the system revisions and increment appropriately as per your production workflow without the need of a special workflow.
