is there a way to search for parts having the same attribute value?

As an example:
every part in my library has an attribute "order code".

now it happened that someone else created the same part slightly different but with the same "order code".

Can i search through all vault items giving me all items that have the same attribute values?

i am looking for a general search, not "find all items with order code == xys123".
because i dont know if duplicates exist and which order code they have.

thank you

Hi Harry,

Unfortunately there is no way to do this type of search in the Vault Manager search facility as a target value always has to be specified.

The way to approach this would be to list all parts ordered by the attribute 'order code' then scan the list looking for adjacent duplicate 'order code' values. Although the Vault Manager search allows ordering by user defined attributes it doesn't at present show those user defined attributes in the resulting "Vault Items" grid.

The PDC Vault interface would allow this type information to be shown, if you have a PDC license

This kind of list could also be generated using the Postgres "PGAdmin |||" utility but you may not be familiar with that tool either.

I hope this helps.
