References Tabs

Before editing a system rule, ensure that no other users are using the system. After editing a system rule, restart your PDXpert client application.

Purpose §

Determines whether part and document records' References tabs will accept child parts or documents.

Description §

True: Allows items of the specified class to be added onto the item's References list.

False: Blocks items of the specified class from being added onto the item's References list.

Data type §

True/False

Recommended or default value §

Parts §

If both checkboxes are cleared, then the References tab is not shown on part records.

References accept parts §
Default is True. Set as True if you allow part records to identify other parts as references (for example, designed parts may identify tooling or fixtures).
References accept documents §
Default is True. Set as True if you allow part records to identify documents as references (for example, assemblies may identify assembly instructions).

Documents §

If both checkboxes are cleared, then the References tab is not shown on document records.

References accept parts §
Default is False. Set as True if you allow document records to identify parts as references.
References accept documents §
Default is True. Set as True if you allow document records to identify other documents as references (for example, procedures may identify requirements).

Details §

To avoid unnecessary record iterations, avoid cross-references where two records reference each other. Simplify the relationship by limiting which items can rely upon (reference) another. You can easily discover the cross-relationship by looking at the referenced item's Appears On tab.
