We recently upgaded to ST6 and keep all our parts/assemblies on our server in folders divided by part numbers. Any time we pull in a part that is located in the same folder as the assembly we get an annoying warning that says "(Duplicate Part Document) The part you want to place has the same name as a part document in the same folder as the assembly will be placed automatically. Click OK to continue or click Cancel to stop placement and rename you document." This is very annoying. Is there any way to turn this warning off?
Are you sure your pulling in a part that is located in the assemblies folder or are you pulling in a part from a different folder and that part also happens to be in the assemblies folder?
The latter scenario is when that warning message is displayed.
The clue is in the statement -
"The part you want to place has the same name as a part document in the same folder as the assembly"
You have 2 models with the same name - one in your server folders and one in the same folder as your assembly.
By default, when loading an assembly, Solid Edge looks in the 'Container' folder first for the parts of that assembly (ie. the folder where the assembly is located) - even if the part was first attached from a different folder.
So, in your case, it's finding the 'Container' copy and telling you its going to use that one, not the server folder copy.
