1702165 - Unable to Change any Parameter to Zero Using Mass Change for Materials


When you try to change the value of a certain Parameter of a Material to Zero using Mass Change, zero is disappearing from the default cell and cell remains empty.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Product Data work center.
  2. Select Materials view.
  3. Select the list of materials and select Mass Change button.
  4. Enter zero in a default cell for a particular parameter.
  5. Select Enter key in the keyboard, the zero disappears.


The reason that 0 get disappeared is that 0 is always considered as a null value (no value is entered) in the default row. Hence it is not possible to change any parameter to zero (0) using Mass Change.


The system works as designed.

So, if you want to change the value to Zero, you can directly change in the Material instead of using Mass Change.

Note: If you want to change the value to any integer value other than zero, you can use Mass Change functionality.
