I try to exlain what my problem is as clear as possible.


I made a spec in a normal way. I use this spec in my piping file. No problems so far.


Next I modify the description of some parts in the catalog. I updated my spec an the parts in the model. Still no problems.


When I make a 3D parts report with the report creator I see the old description. Problem!

When i look in the datamanger in my piping file I see only the correct decriptions. Also when I export my datamanager file and import it back in.

When I check the properties of some parts in the piping file I see the new description.


How is this possible?

Try clearing out the local data cache by running the PnPLocalDataCachePurger.exe from the install folder of the product.
