Where Used

You can list all the places where a specified part or assembly is used.

Set the search criteria on the References/Where Used tab in the Options dialog box. The Where Used function does not use Microsoft Windows Desktop Search as its search engine.

To find where a document is used:

  1. Select the document in the File Explorer tab in the left pane.
  2. Select the Where Used tab in right pane.
    Information about referenced documents appears in the following columns:
    • Document. Lists the document names.
    • Full path
    • Size
    • Type. Lists the type of document (for example, SOLIDWORKS Part Document).
    • Date Modified
    • Attributes (as reported by Windows Explorer)
    You can save the contents of the list to a text file by clicking Save to File (SOLIDWORKS Explorer toolbar).
