I am very new to Tc. i managed to import some of my part to TC now. As I need to quickly learn how to find parts I am doinf a search. I noticed there is a search for local stuff, so I used the local search.
It does not look the same as the searh command in the help files so I am not sure where that one is. anyway;
Using the part/item description delivers no results. If I know the part ID it works.
I don't hink I will ever know the part ID, how am I suppose to use the searh so that I can find the parts by entering some string in the search box?
Thanks you in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Part number is equivalent to ItemID, so you can use search query "Item..." and provide part number in the field "Item ID".
Alternatively, use query "General..." and specify part number followed by asterik symbol (*) in Name field.

within teamcenter, it is natural to search for parts using name and description instead of IDs. you can suffix/prefix wild cards to name and description that you typed in the search field.
