Re: REPLACE PART IN SEVERAL ASSEMBLIES

I'd create a new temporary assembly and assemble into it all the assemblies in which you want to replace a component with some other one.

Then, do a search and then replace by unrelated component.

At this point, I'd hopefully be asked by the system to check out things because they are being changed.  Do this, then check in the temporary assembly, along with all the changed sub-assemblies.

Then, delete the temporary assembly from windchill...

Yes, you could record a trail file that does the replacement, modify it (copy paste) for all of the assemblies you want and then run Creo in no graphics mode (-g:no_graphics).

Paul Sobejko‌'s way is probably easier though.
