Conditions for Handling Revision Tables

SOLIDWORKS PDM either updates a placeholder row or adds a new row to the revision table in a SOLIDWORKS drawing.

Whether SOLIDWORKS PDM updates a placeholder row or adds a new row depends on certain conditions:
  • Condition 1: The placeholder row exists in a SOLIDWORKS drawing.
  • Condition 2: The Revision value in the latest revision row of the revision table in the SOLIDWORKS drawing matches with the Revision variable value in SOLIDWORKS PDM.

SOLIDWORKS PDM updates the placeholder row if at least one condition is true and adds a new row if both conditions are false.

Revision table integration supports the zone column only when the placeholder row exists. The value of the zone variable varies with revision symbol location.
