Once again, this email exploder has proved to be invaluable. Thanks to all who replied. The solution turned out to be a lot simpler than I had anticipated.
First create a part parameter (to control a dimension for example). Create the relations at the assembly level. You need to use the SESSION ID's for both part and assembly: PART_PARAMETER:SESSION_ID=ASSEMBLY_PARAMETER:SESSION_ID At the "Relations" window, choose "Insert | From List..." menu pick until you find the part or assembly parameter and Pro/E automatically generates the code needed for the Session ID. (in WF2) You can then add the assembly parameter to the family table and drive the value entered into all associated part parameters.
