Finding Parts
When you initiate certain actions such as Compare you are required to find another part to complete the operation. Clicking an action to find a part launches a part specific search window. The title of the window varies according to the action being performed.
Follow these general steps when using part specific search windows:
1. Enter values for part search criteria that return the desired objects. For a definition of part specific attributes, see Part Attributes.
Some of the search criteria provide the ability to launch a second search operation using the find icon , the date selection icon , or selections from drop-down lists.
2. Click the Search button beneath the search criteria. The parts matching the search criteria are displayed in the Search Results table beneath the criteria.
3. Select the desired parts from the search results table and click OK at the bottom of the search window.
The action that launched the search continues with the selected parts.
