We are using Intralink 3.3 & Wildfire 2.
The problem we have is to do with the interaction between Intralink Object
attributes and Pro/E parameters.
In Intralink we have 2 Object Attributes which are type "date" (as opposed
to String/Integer etc.)
In Pro/e 2001 everything was fine. Unfortunately in Wildfire 2, Pro/e does
not allow parameters with type "date".
This means this parameter cannot be changed within Pro/engineer - on saving
we get an error saying:
"Unable to save from Pro/engineer. Parameter with DATE type is not allowed"
The only way to enter a value for this parameter is through the
Workspace. This is proving troublesome - users are either forgetting or
Does anybody know a way to solve this problem? Surely other companies used
the "Date" attribute ? If so, what do you do?
Deleting the attribute from Intralink is not an option, this makes all
existing object values revert to the default value - 11/11/11, this is
obviously not acceptable.
Is there a way using SQL I can change the attribute type to "String" ? Or
is there a way to delete the attribute without losing existing values ?
Any advise greatly appreciated!
