Interpart Expressions NX8.5-NX11 units conversion

Creator

We are preparing to transition to NX11 from NX8.5. I am working in native...

 

I have read thru the posts on the new way for interpart expressions but have a different issue with them.

 

When I open my NX8.5 part in NX11 it creates the "*_0" interparts for me but I get an error message:

But they did match in NX8.5, they were both constant in the child and parent (source) part files:

Now it is making my "*_0" new expressions as Length and I can't edit them to make them Constant:

Is there a setting I can change or a way to edit these to be Constant that I am not seeing?

I don't want to change the original exp's to Length

thanks

you can select the cells in the expressions dialog and copy them into Excel.

here you can quickly remove the *_0 by using the replace tool.
then copy everything back into the expressions dialog.

But those are the interpart expressions that the system automatically generates when it updates the 8.5 part file to 11...I have to keep those right?

I just want to change the "Dimensionality" of the *_0 expressions from Length to Constant

NX created the _0 expressions. The other ones were already there in my NX8.5 file. I didn't create any new expressions
