If you are asking how to find a part located in an assembly structure, look at the Select Tools tab on the Edge Bar.  Right mouse click in the field at the top, choose a property to search on, enter a value and it will locate your part.  You can also make and store persistent searches if you desire/need that.

No, I do not think that is what I am looking for. It is my understanding each part within an assembly file has its own Unique ID number. So if there's ten 1/4-20 nuts each nut has it's own Unique ID number to separate them from each other. This Unique ID number is used in the harness app to identify which part to link end "a" of the wire to which connector.

Sorry, I didn't realize this was the Developer area.  I use the new message list on the Solid Edge main site and thought this to be the Solid Edge Q&A.

You can always get the ReferenceKey property of an Occurrence/SubOccurrence. This byte array is persistent and can be used to binid this reference key again to a SubOccurrence/Occurrence later.

Thanks very much for supplying this answer, though it may not have been what the gentleman was looking for, it was, in fact, exactly that which I needed!
