dwf bug - beyond bad

Those of us who use the vault know the problem with dwf's only publishing the first sheet of a multi-sheet set. It has just come to
my attention that not only is it publishing only one sheet, but in some cases it is appending that one sheet to the old drawing set
(replacing the first sheet). The right side of the image shows the drawing open in Inventor, the left shows the current dwf in the
vault. Note the different reference numbers which are pulled from the drawing's iProperties. They match on sheet one but the rest
are different. This is beyond bad news.

Dave,

Could you provide more info on the problem at hand - what exactly are you experiencing?
- Explain the 'dwf publishing the first sheet of a multi-sheet set' workflow and means you used to determine this.
- Explain the 'appending one sheet to an old drawing set' workflow and how you've tested this.

Thanks,

On your first point this is a known bug. You have to open the publish dialog & toggle the "all sheets" box, then close it to get all
sheets to publish when checking into the vault.
On your second point see the attached dwf. Notice the first sheet has a different reference number in the title block. This is not
possible, the reference number is extracted from the drawing iProperties. The idw viewed in Inventor does not show this. We don't
always use a reference number so usually this would be undetectable. I have no idea how many drawings on the server have this
condition. I'm thinking of deleting everything off the server & using the task scheduler to republish everything. This would be
thousands of drawings.
