Checking out older versions

Hi, it’s Engineering Data Specialist Man with your tip of the randomly chosen time interval.

Imagine you have a file in SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM that has two versions. Further imagine you wish to modify this file, but version one is actually a little bit closer to what you want than the second version.

If you “Get” version one, then check it out, Enterprise will get the latest version [in this example version two] first then give you write access. -Most of the time this is good, but not for this example ’cause you just went through the trouble to get version one!

So in this example, you have to check out the file first, then get the older version. When you check this file back in you would create a new version – version three.
