In our windchill server, We got some Classification that use a defined "Tolerance Attributes" using the "percentage" unit.
This "percentage" unit is defined into "Qty of measure menu" as "override" = % into all Measurement system.
Seems good at first but when we set a part with attribute tolerance lets say to: 5 to get 5% tolerance.
When the part is display after the creation the Tolerance attribute is display = 0.05 %
I look into the documentation but I was not able to find a default unit equal to the percentage sign(%) is like that % unit is not standard but I can't find where it could be define elsewhere.
How can I get the % sign for the attribute but got the displayed value not divide by 100.
We have currently the same issue. Does your issue have been solved ? Does anyone have an idea ?
Someplace in the Unit of Measure settings or maybe the Preferences for the display to show the right values.
I had to change some preference for my weight to show pounds in Windchill and Creo. Originally Creo showed pounds but Windchill converted it to kg when the file was checked-in. Changed the preference for display units and all is good now.
Excel does something similar. If you define a cell as a percentage, you need to enter .05 to get it to display 5%.
I suspect you are probably seeing the behaviour mentioned in this knowledge article, and known SPR.
Depending on the Windchill version/CPS you are on, there may be a fix for it.
You may want to open a Support case, if it's not the issue in that article - but it sounds like it probably is.
yes it works now... ( It seems!!!)
And your documentation was right.. it seems to be a problem from our server migration from version 8 to 11 ~two years ago.
So to conclude it seems to be related to system of measure. We delete the Percentage sign from all system of measure / save and reedit the % sign in the same field and it seems to fix the problems now.
Thank you for your support
