Changing Part Names

I have an assembly where I have to change some of the name and replace small caps with large caps. I used sw explore to do this. I opend the assembly with the parts that I need changed and changed the names there. Now when I open up the assem the parts that I changed names I have to sursch for them how do you update the refrences so I don't have to surch for them each time I open up the assem? Would I use the replace function?

you did the right thing by using swx explorer. it sounds like you just didn't go far enough. when you change the name of a part using swx explorer, you have to hit 'find where used' before you hit apply.

this will keep the reference errors from happening again on the next project.
