A product once created can not be deleted, only renamed. If the possibility exists that you will need a new product in the future, mark it read-only for now and rename it when you do need the new product.

Thank you so much

I got it

What about folder ? The same will aplly ?

Re: How to delete product from windchill not folder inside the product ?

I think an empty folder may be deleted. It has been a while since I have tried it and I'm not at a system to test.

Re: How to delete product from windchill not folder inside the product ?

Once again thanks for your immediate reply.

Do u have any idea that how to export config.pro , symbol files, material files, dtl files into windchill ?

Re: How to delete product from windchill not folder inside the product ?

Yes, a regular folder that is contained within a Product folder can be deleted.

Re: How to delete product from windchill not folder inside the product ?

You do not want those files in Windchill. Only your start part template files get a copy installed in Windchill as that prevents the system from loading them to your workspace and marking them as new.

I know this is old, but I would also like to add that the recommended method to modify a product template is to create a new product from an existing template, make the modifications required, do a save as template and then delete the original template. This leaves you with a floating product, that you cannot delete. SO in my humble opinion it is not a very effective way of modifying a product template, but it is nonetheless, the only way I can think of.
