What is the purpose of this field? It does not seem to be referenced anywhere else in the software, but for some reason, keeps you from duplicating.
I'm not 100% but I believe it is the part number for the Harness Design or effectively the Drawing Part Number.
The part number can be displayed on the border (title block), typically harnesses always have unique part numbers.
In my projects I have a harness somewhere with partnumber `12', (I cannot use this number for a new harness).
Is there a way to find quickly find this harness?
I don't know a quick way of doing this... if you know what connectors existed in this harness then you could look in VeSys Components. The where used report for components actually tells you the project and design name.
Sorry that this may not be the answer you were looking for
So if i have 18 parts that I currently use and are not changing and 5 parts are changing and i import these into a new project I cannot have those 18 parts have the same number now in a new project.
I think you should have the part number unique by project not unique by system.. Most companies have plenty of other checks in their release processes to prevent duplicate part numbers from happening. But this is preventing me from reusing part numbers without having to use annoying work arounds when a simple copy would have worked.
But given this issue is 4 years old I'm somewhat disappointed it has not been implimented already.
