Smarter Serial Numbers with SolidWorks Enterprise PDM

April 16th, 2013

Last week I showed you that you could use PigeonHole for smarter drop lists in your EPDM data cards. PigeonHole also has the ability to put EPDM serial numbers into your cards.

With PigeonHole, if you want to use different serial numbers, enclose the name of the serial number between two pound symbols (#Serial Number#) as a choice in your drop lists. The user will see this choice, in this format, when picking from the list, but the choice will be converted into the proper serial number once he accepts the dialog box settings.

It is easy, check it out:

Much easier than creating many different data cards or writing your own EPDM add-in.
