How to change Type of EPMDocument type in batch mode?

Hi

We have some EPMDocuments as "DefaultEPMDocument" type in a Particular Library.

How we can change all the data in this particular library to some other SubType, say "StandardPartType"

As of now i can change one item at a time using "wt.epm.util.SoftTypeChangeUtility"

1. how can i change items of a particular library in batch mode?

2. how can i pass username password in single document mode command itself?

Thank you.

Hi Rakesh,

Go to the PTC Knowledge Base for Windchill and look up "ChangeTypeSql".  This is a simple java class that you can request and install on your Windchill system that you can use to change the soft type of any object within Windchill.  You cannot change from one modeled type to another but you can change soft types.  For example you can change a WTDocument to a ReferenceDocument but you cannot change an EPMDocument to a WTPart.

Hope It Helps,

Hi Patrick

  • This utility is not support for EPMDocuments and subtypes as using this tool might cause data corruption.
  • Use the wt.epm.util.SoftTypeChangeUtility instead.
