How to remove a ghost object (asm) when revising a prt file
My coworker opened a single part & drawing for revison.
Altered one sketch. Opened the drawing and added the necessary dims.
Upon saving the part a ghost assembly file was generated of a very old legacy file.
The legacy cad file itself does not exist, yet an assembly file seems to be linked to this part.
Question: How can we remove this assembly ghost file so we can check in the revised component part?
Simply trying to delete the ghost alone DOES NOT work. You get a referential integrity error message when attempting a check in or one when trying to remove only the ghost as WC says the ghost is attached to the (revised) part. As a point of reference, the ghost does not appear at the lower revision or until you first save it. Attempts to backup or save as have the same affect.
Re-creating whole files is not an option.
Any real step by step procedure would be greatly appreciated. This is WC9.1, Pro-E WF4.0..
I like just removing the external reference in Creo with the Reference Viewer. If the reference is not available for removal, it must be part of a feature that was created with an external reference dependency. As an example, a CutOut feature can be made as a copy or reference. If created as a reference, you'll always have to carry around the extref. If you want to get rid of it, you'll have to redefine the feature and remove the dependency.
