Re: How Document checkout Works in the Windchill.

WTDocument checkout / in is fundamentally different from CAD Document checkout / in.

CAD creates relationships between files (e.g.assy <> component and drawing <> component or assy).  For this reason, filenames need to be constant.

For WTDocuments (non-CAD), think of the "document" as a container for a file (actually one or more files if attachments are used).  The contents of the container are replaced with each checkin.  You can in fact create a WTDocument with a Word file, then on check out, replace it with an Excel file.

I'm not seeing how this answers the user's question.
