    I recently mirrored a part from a part in an assy. I now have applied
    proper part numbers to the original and mirrored parts. The new
    mirrored part number is still referencing the old non-numbered
    original part. How can I change the reference on the new mirrored part
    number to read the new part number of the original non-mirrored part?

    did you use solidworks explorer to rename?
    if reanming an in-context part/assy, you must use solidworks explorer to
    maintain the relationships.

    oops, forgot to answer.
    select open
    select mirrored part
    select "references" radio button
    select part you wish to reference

    I think you have to change the reference from the file/open dialog box to
    make it point to a different part.

    You might also move the non-numbered part out of that folder. Diego
