    Question sheet set manager changing last sheet ID value

    Hi all
    I have a sheet set manager problem - it randomly changes the value in the Last Sheet ID under the custom properties.
    I manually add the number to this field but it keeps changing and nobody else in my office is changing it.
    I have no idea why this is happening and was hoping to find some answers.
    Thanks in advance!!

    It would be hard to know what that could be, knowing that it's a custom property.
    Maybe you could give more info, like is it just text you edit in the sheet properties? or is it a field?

    maybe you could upload a sample dst and sheet with the field that changes?

    (I have no idea what it could be but more info may help for others to maybe help)

    It's just text that I manually enter, usually at the end of the job. Then my sheets have that field in the title block it pulls that information from.

    Another question, are you/do you create projects from scratch; (from a template etc) or do you do a save as from other projects?
    A problem that arises is a sheet referencing another SSM (.dst) because it was copied and is still looking at the old SSM vs the new one.

    Just a guess.. I don't know for sure.

    I've worked with SSM since it's inception, and have never seen this.

    Good question, we created from scratch using a template.

    - - - Updated - - -

    well... another issue (maybe) is that we also use ProjectWise to save our drawing in. We have a lot of issues with that especially with data references. So it might just be a quarky thing.
