Another repost but one that was just before the system conversion.  This is a query that can help you determine which products are in need or purging.  If someone wants to convert to Query Builder, be my guest. This you can run in Toad.

This another repost.  Let me know if there are dead links but they should all work.  After some time, I was able to gather stats on our system cleanup of large family tables.  The video is from 2011 but much of it shouls still apply.  It contains stats and data on the project.  If you have trouble sleeping, this might do the trick Smiley Tongue

Have you looked at the ordered lists in Windchill's ootb tasks in their workflows and thought "ew"?  These lists either have no html formating or use &nbsp; characters to create tabbed lists that are unappealing and feel a bit unprofessional.  I have played with the html tags <ol> <ul> and <dl> and these are my findings.

After 6 years of cheesy blog posts and one system upgrade, I am back. My blog was almost lost to the internet forever but fear not. I am reposting my personal blog here. Even more cheese. Many of these were written long ago, in a version far, far away but still apply. I promise future (new) posts will be current and of the queso variety.

 

This post should still apply and excuse the early 2000's UI. Well, it seems like they ported all my blog images over to the new version. Waa Hooo.
