Perfect, I did eventually find that, and, it worked perfectly!
One note, is that it merely creates a feature within the model you had in your assembly. In my case this worked fine. I saved the file as a STEP and I had my info.
Of possible interest to anyone trying to compare parts, Pro/e offers a couple other techniques. The first is an Intersect part. It is ithe opposite of the subtract or cut out operation graminator mentioned. You start with the same two parts in an assembly, then you create a third part ('Insert>Component>Create') and from the list on the right, click the Intersect radio button. This produces a seperate part with the common volume of the two: another way of seeing where they are different is to see where they are the same.
A third way to compare parts is the more direct: 'Analysis>Compare Parts'. When you select 'By geometry' it paints the parts three different colors to show bigger, same and smaller. The scale range tells by how much. 'By feature' inventories the two parts by feature, showing whicy are the same or different and how, e.g., size, position, additional feature, missing feature. Both of these are quick, handy ways to compare without having to create an assembly and insert the parts. When you get used to using them, will probably tell you quickly exactly what you want to know about the two parts. Unfortunately, the color graph offers no way to save it although you can save the feature inventory/analysis.
