Man, I'm pretty sure I'm pissed off every time I post on this board! :mad:

So I formatted my POS corporate computer and reinstalled XP and Catia. Apparently I lost a bunch of config crap because Catia is doing things that it wasn't doing before.

Some of the stuff I do is repetitive so I have a folder full of parts and xml design tables in it. I used to be able to copy this folder into new folders and access the parts just fine. It's looking like now, when I copy this folder, all of the parts with design tables don't access the design table in the new location, they access the design tables in the original location! :mad:

How do I stop catia from using these F'ing location references? When the design table is in the same folder as the part USE THAT DAMN TABLE!!
