in which assembly is the part used?

Hello,

I would like to ask if there is any way how to find out in which assemblies is used one particular part.

We have a large folder with several similar assemblies. Then there are two versions of similar part, for example.

If I open all the assemblies at first, so they are loaded in session memory, I can use reference viewer to find out where is this particular part used. But is there any way how to do this without opening a large number of assemblies?

Hope my question is understandable, thanks for replies.

I know granite can help you on this. You need to build solution on your own. Sorry but I do not understand why this search is required?

Don't know if this works still.

(Creo/WF5.0)

 

Windows - Open System Window

(At the prompt) WHEREUSED (filename) ABCXYZ.asm (or .prt)

 

A text box opens with all the places used.

Drawback - false positives so you have to go and check, but at least it narrows it down when not using a PDM product).

There was a discussion of this previously, with lots of info. Here's  a link.

Hi,

 

assembly file (for example podsestava.asm.1) is mix of ascii characters and binary code. Component names are present in readable form when you open assembly file in Notepad++. See CP_P1 - name of component located in my podsestava.asm.1.

Because of this you can use for example FileLocator Lite software to "scan" the contents of all assembly files and look for specific component name.
