I know very little about this, but I think the key word is 'Library'. There are several threads in the NG about, libraries being changed to read-only in IV6; maybe this is the problem.

I have a well thought out, perfectly healthy iPart factory in
5.3.

When I bring it into 6 I am unable to edit the table. I get a
message
telling me that the current values do not match the parts current
values.
It then asks me if I want to update the table befor continuing.

I assume that if I choose "Yes" the value of the table is
supposed to update to match the current current value.

I also assume that if I choose "No" the value of the table will
not update.

Here is the kicker, whether I choose yes or no, upon exiting the
iPart
Author dialog box that says "Cannot modify the library file C:\
.....
factory.ipt"

I am significantly troubled by this. We have invested a
significant amount
of money in iParts that worked great in 5.3. We are wondering if
we are
losing that investment. I have tried searching for errors in 5.3
and have
found nothing. I can get no clues from 6.0. Anyone out there
have a
solution?

I have attached the ipart of a simple screw (307 different
separate line
items). We have many more of these, this is a small one. Please
help me.

Note that I have attached our companies "Threads.xls" file. The
iParts will
not work in 5.3 without this file.
