DIR creation via Solidworks and ECTR

0 Kudos


I have setup Solidworks with ECTR and have a question.

From SW, when I click on new, it pops up "Do you want to create a DIR", I say no and create a model which when saved is stored in Session directory. I then open it, click Import and the DIR is created in SAP and the model also checked in. This process works fine.

Now, if I click on Yes in the initial popup "Do you want to create a DIR", the DIR is generated, I create a model and save it, but it is not saved in SAP and neither checked in. If I try to open it from SAP, it says original missing. I can neither check it in nor open it.

What is the mistake here? Please provide some insight.

Hello Gerhard,

Thanks for clarifying. I had completely missed out on this aspect... It is working now

Hello Prashanth,

are you using the "SAVE" button from the SAP PLM ribbon in Solidworks or the native SAVE button from Solidworks?

If you are using the SAP-PLM-ribbon-SAVE, then please create an incident.

Hope this helps.
