Hi, yes it is hard to replicate as i tried multiple times and only was able to replicate twice.

Can you test this again using revise from "User Defined Properties"?

ok its been a rough morning so disregaurd my last post. i have tried using UDP's and it has not worked. 

 

FYI - after i screwed the rev letters up we did a restore to the vault. we added SP2 to the server and client. i ran a few more tests with new files and everytime it worked fine.

 

my current thought, since tests pre rev letter inplementing ran fine but implementing didnt, are my new results conclusive? it seems to me like a roll of the dice and i do not want to roll the dice on the live vault data again. our IT dept is getting a little agitated with restoring the vault.

 

SO....my next thought is....

i was setting the rev letter using the Revise button.

 

yes the rev letter is in the Inventor file but we are also doing this to AutoCad and Office files.

 

i tried to replicate the issue ALL last week. everytime i ran test everything worked fine. So idk if the issue is still here or not. im done testing this issue.

 

While implementing the rev letter to the live files if something goes wrong i will be looking into this again but until then i am done.

Hello,

 

I am also seeing the same exact issue. We are using vault 2012 pro.

 

I select, lets say 10 files(5 idw and 5 ipt), and select Revise. I use the "from udp, I can see clearly that all files Rev number is set to A. Then I get a random file revised to B. Now I am screwed. I cannot revert to a previous revision becaus ethe next poor guy who actually needs rev B cannot use it. Attached are some screen shots.

 

These files were all revised at the same time. I suspect that the Rev number property was also changed in example 2. Bu tth ehistory does not reflect that.

Hey Gents,

 

Will connect with both of you offline and dig a little deeper into the problems - this type of issue is not easy to troubleshoot without dataset and a real good handle on the exact steps.
