SUMMARY: help with mass props reporting

In regards to simply using the config options

mass_property_calculate automatic

save_objects changed



It seems I need to retract my earlier statement that "this config setting
does not seem to be a good choice in conjunction with Intralink."



The issue I was having stems from family tables.



Let me start from the beginning. Several users instructed me to simply move
my relation POUNDS = PRO_MP_MASS to the "Post Regeneration" section of the
Relations, and use the above config options, and that would solve all my
problems. I had tested this, and found that this resulted in oodles of
modified parts. I was advised, "It'll only happen once - check those parts
in and they'll never be modified again after subsequent mass prop
calculations." I tested this, and found it to be untrue - I was STILL
getting oodles of modified parts. That's when I made the statement above.

HOWEVER, I've further tested it, and discovered that the issue stems from
Family Tables. Specifically, I needed to add the POUNDS parameter to the
family table for any part which uses the POUNDS = PRO_MP_MASS relation.
Once I did that, it appears to fix the issue.



Thanks to all that helped (and that prompted me to keep investigating!)
