QUERY:

To start a Query in SE we have exatelly 13 Parameters to search for:

It could be tha case, that a company has ist own customisable Parameters like it is the case with the following situation:
-Parameter 1 : Bezeichnung1
-Parameter 2 : Bezeichnung2

To avoid wasting time in configuring a query for "every" Assembly, I propose to Copy the content of the Parameter 1 & Parameter 2 and paste them in the field: "Stichwörter" that every SE-User has access to it in the following format for example:
Content of Parameter 1 - Content of Parameter 2

During saving our files for the first time, if we Copy & Paste these Parameters in the right Filed, we could start a Query and find every Part in every Assembly easily without extra effort and time comsumption!

I am now looking for a possibility to copy the 2/N-Custom Parameters and to paste them in the Field "Stichwörter" globaly in a managed or not managed environement without the need the do it manually!

 

Thanks in advance,

Yasser

From the file properties I used the following fields: 1 & 2

 

-Open the files in Solid Edge
-Click on: "Properties Manager"
-Copy & Paste the Customised information to the fields 1 & 2

 

=>Now it's possible to search for this information globaly from any Assembly without wasting time in customising a Query for each Assembly...

Not sure I follow exactly.

So now you just specify "keyword" or "stichworter" in your query?

Exactelly bshand...

 

In Solid Edge / ASM I have to search for one of the parameters, that Solid Edge offers.

 

It's not the best sollution but it helps me in the Assemblies and also in the Drafts.

I didn't know you could use the Summary tab in file properties that way.

Hi,


not certain to understand You complete, but as far as I have unterstood,
there are to ways to accomplish Your needs.

 

Either use a saved query instead of the quick query (yOu can copy it from one asm to another or You write a small macro for copy one or more properties  to "Stichwörter"

 

I would recommend here to use the comment if possible, since there is the opportunity for a multiple line text.

That means evry original proerty could be in a different line.

 

I think for comparing and finding it could be easier.

 

I know, that the macro code for copy/paste proeprties form one to another field isn't that difficult,
and I think thee already exists macros doing exactly that.

 

We have to look for.

 

Maybe the forum community can help here
