Because my company is setup such that it has 3 companies operating under one roof and multiple MRP systems we have components that could have different part numbers depending on which company is in posession of it. As a design Engineer I need to be able to produce production drawings for all 3 divisions and provide production personnel the appropriate part #s for the items depending on where in the process the item is.
The Eng. Dept. acts across all companies the designs are controlled in a single place. I have created Custom Content Center Libraries for the different companies for standard items like nuts, bolts, etc...
How can I choose which Custom Conent Center Library my parts come from?

For anyone else who is brain dead and may have this issue in the future, I simply gave the part Families different names. Before, I was using the same name for the part family regardless of which company it belonged to.
Seems that I jumped the gun a little, renaming didn't make Copies of the same family with different part number data available simultaneously, only the latest one to be changed/saved.
Not sure I’ve understood correctly your need.
By the way, in the Content Center Editor, you can select one of the custom families you have created and make a Save Copy As.
In the following dialog, you can decide if you want to make an independent or linked copy and apply the Family Name and Description you like to the copied family.
And, in the same dialog, if you click on Review, you will get another dialog where you can define the desired File Name and Part Number.
I hope this can be helpful.
