I have a part where changes were made changing the part from A.3 to A.4 and those changes are no longer needed at the time. I'm wondering if there is a way to check out A.3 then check in changing the part from A.3 to A.5. I would like to still keep A.4 incase we decide to revert back to that model.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Open the A.3 iteration in a clean workspace, then do a check-in. It will go into Windchill as A.5.
For safety, be sure that the part is not in other workspaces.
Before upgrading to 11.1 that option worked but since we upgraded I now receive a message saying that it cannot be checked out because its not the latest iteration.
Yikes! I am still on 11.0.
Open the A.3 in Creo and do a backup to disk.
Erase all from memory and the workspace.
Open the A.3 from disk and see if it comes in as a new part.
You should then be able to check it in as A.5.
Is there a preference setting that changed with 11.1 that prevents non-latest iterations from being checked out?
FYI, we don't allow check out of non-latest iterations, but that doesn't stop someone from bringing an older version forward as the latest.
