We are storing our formats in commonspace and would like to store several other standard files here also. I am trying to set the search path for the formats but I'm not having much luck. I tried the following syntax suggested by another user a while back but it isn't working (pc170002 is the machine hosting the vault):
There is a bug (see SPR below) in which clicking on the format pulls it into Workspace but not into the Pro/E session and gives the error "...format does not exist in the database". Is this the problem you have? The workaround is to open the format from workspace in proe after recieving the error to get it into session, and then add it to your drawing.
