Is there a way to simplify naming of CAD documents?

We are using Creo Parametric 2.0 with Windchill 9.1; currently upgrading to 10.2.

Can something be done to simplify the (re)naming/numbering of our CAD files?

The system automatically assigns the Number based on the Filename of the CAD document - that is good.

But when renaming objects, we currently have to do the double work of entering the same text for the new Filename and the new Number..

Is there a way to automatically make the Number be the same as Filename, and also gray-out or better yet hide the Number columns from the re-name tables?

Paul,

Have you tried using the Set New Name option?  (See screenshot.)

While I understand you are looking for an on-going solution, my company has a utility that you can use to bulk rename EPMDocuments in the case that you have a large number that you want to update in one fell swoop.  I'd be happy to let you know more about it if you are interested.

Feel free to send me an e-mail directly at robert.sindelar@eccellent.com if you'd like to discuss further.
