I agree, you do want to use a start part all of the time so you have all of your company standards incorporated.
Once in a while you will recieve a part from a vendor, other company or a newbie just imports it, so you have to add the parameters.

Subject [proecad] - RE: Parameters filled out from excel
Lance & Co, Is there some reason you wouldn't want the imported files to use the start part files? We use the config.pro option "intf_in_use_template_models" >yes to force STEP, IGES, etc. to use our start part template. That way we've got our parameters, datums, layers in the model. The user just tells Pro/E to open the import file and it automatically contains our standard info. Just a thought. Rich -----End Original Message-----
