RE: Code for renaming EPMDoc Number and Filename

Thanks for the help, Randy.Hard to believe whatIwas looking for was in the PTC KB. The renaming works in WC, but I am having a problem opening the renamedCADDocs in Pro/E.It downloads to the workspace butgives me the error "<name>cannot be retrieved" in the Pro/E message area. It seems like it's stilllooking for the old name somewhere. I thought I remembered seeing something related to this subject when I was searching through the forum but can't find it now. Anyone know how to fix it?

If the files were in the workspace already you need to select 'Tools'; 'Synchronize' from the embedded browser.
It does a more comprehensive comparison and picks up renames whereas a Workspace Refresh does not.

Re: Code for renaming EPMDoc Number and Filename

Were you looking for Java code? I have an external script that can rename from a text file input. I use it for mass renames.

Thanks for the reply Antonio. Since I posted this a few years ago I wrote some code that renames given an input file. I posted it here: https://community.ptc.com/t5/Windchill-Blog/Windchill-Custom-Utility-Examples-Updated/ba-p/483122
