In SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, you have an option to allow or not allow duplicates in the vault. Some companies have a valid reason to allow duplicates or they have migrated duplicates into their vault from a network drive, hoping to clean them up one day. If you need a way to find the duplicates, just run the report file attached to this blog post. You will need access to report generator (located under the tools menu in EPDM). Simply open the attached report file and select execute to see the results. Don’t forget to visit www.inflow-tech.com.
