How do I change a version/revision value after the file has been checked into common space? I want to change revision "B" back to revision "A" in common space.
It is possible using Windchill shell, and the command wt.vc.ChangeRevisionLabelUtility. (CS31039) But it requires that there are no pre-existing revision A's. Does that fit your use case? Or do you want to merge more B iterations into existing iterations of A?
The revision was changed from "A" to "B" and checked in. I want to keep the updates that were made to the CAD file, but I want the revision to be "A" instead of "B".
I don't think there is a way to accomplish what you would like. I think this has been a long-running complaint, too.
If versions A.1, A.2, A.3, and A.4 exist ... and then B.1, B.2 are created ... we can't change the B1 and B2 to A5 and A6.
You may be able to trick the system if the right conditions exist.
Backup the B.2 revision to disk
Delete the revison B files from Windchill
Set State on revisin a to your in-work level
Check out to your workspace the revision A file
Open the file on disk into Creo
Save the file in Creo so it goes into your workspace
Check in the file so it goes into commonspace as a new iteration of revision A
This does assume that revision B is not referenced in any files so you can actually delete it.
The sequence of check out to your workspace and iopen the file from disk may be reversed from what will work, I don't remember off teh top of my head which order those steps should be in.
Remember that rev B.1 is the same as A.x (x being the highest A iteration)
Depending on the changes made, Delete B and just checkout and redo the work on A.
