I'm needing to update a custom attribute for 500 wtparts. Is it possible to skip the Name and Revision columns in the import spreadsheet?
The Validator states: Following part attributes are required: Name
At the moment, the only process I can comprehend is to export all the Name and Revision data from the system for all the items, do some Excel work, then import again. Please share an easier method with me.
Assuming I understood what you want:
If I'm remembering correctly you can skip Name (we made some updates at 11.0), but you must have Revision or Windchill will not know what version you are trying to update.
There is also a preference that manages who to deal with blank cells in the spreadsheet:
|Empty Values When Importing from Spreadsheet
|When an object is imported from a spreadsheet, this preference determines if an empty attribute value remains blank or if the value from the previous iteration is used. The default is to use the value from the previous iteration.
