A variable can be valuated using a SmartCounter counter from a TaskProperties operation, just drag a Counter operation.


Simply select the variable to be valuated and the counter to be filled in this variable.



By default, when using the Counter type, only one number is created for the document.

To assign a counter number for each configuration of the file, you have to check the option: Take a new number


For example, using a "Simple Counter":


  • Option not checked:

  • Option checked:

Please note that the order in which the numbers are assigned may differ from the order displayed by PDM

You can find more information about the SmartCounter settings here SmartCounter

During processing, the assigned counter value will be the same for all tabs of the processed file (all configurations for a SOLIDWORKS file).

For example, the same counter value will be found for the @ configuration and the Default configuration.

Configuration @ :


Configuration Default :


Similarly, if the counter value is assigned on the first configuration (@ for a SOLIDWORKS file), it will not be overwritten in this configuration and will not be valued for the other configurations, the task report will show this information.
