Symbol References in a Workgroup Environment

Recommended Posts


I?m working on a large commercial project, which i decided to split up in parts so as to get other people to develop different areas ....etc... so I?m using referenced files through workgroup links ..... My problem is that as the masterfile has 7 or more links It starts getting full of different symbol references. When I try to find out where a referred symbol come from, so as to modify it, the resource browser only states the obvious .... it referenced .... great! but where from or from which file? ... I may have missed something out, but I couldn?t find out where to look for that information ... does anybody know?

Thanx ..... Oh by the way I?m working in VW 12.5, but apparently this also happens in VW 2008 .....

Try using Master Symbol Files ( one for each CSI category ) to avoid this WGR issue. Locating symbols and revisions are a snap !
