Cutting holes in an assembly - not appearing in the part files?

I'm working on a sheet metal part and i cannot figure out how to make cuts while in an assembly, so the parts retain the recently made holes. The holes show up in an assembly but not in the part files.

Each component has to be edited separately for that to happen I believe.

When in assembly cut click on the "intersect" tab on the dashboard . Uncheck "automatic update" . Under Set Display Level change to Part Level then select all parts to be intersected by cut feature .

This holes a motage holes and drilled on assembly stage. I real life they don't exist on parts before assembly.
If you wish them make a probe assembly. measure needed distances, return to base part and cut a holes.

I know from Solid Edge, that when you want to create a feature in your Assembly, let's say drilling some holes, you must choose, if the holes are
1. an Assembly feature or
2. an Assembly-driven Part feature.
The first choice leaves you with the holes showing only in your assembly.
The second choice leaves you with the holes showing in both your assembly,
and in your part / sheet metal part. This way you can edit your parts via your assembly.
In Pro-Engineer, there must be a similar choice, when making an assembly feature.

I think i know what your problem is! You want to add holes in the assembly itself as you don t know the hole position. Correct?

In this case first open your assembly. In the model tree select the part which you want to edit/add holes to. Right click and activate the part. Now make cuts/holes. Now activate the assembly. Hope this solves your problem.

in proe u need to make the holes in the part files and then regenerate in assembly.....direct editing in assembly will keep the holes till there it wont make any changes in part files.

in pro-e instead of going to part & making hole u can activate the part by right clicking that part in model tree, then you can directly make hole in assembly. it ll automatically arise in part also...

activate ur part in assembly & add holes in part by using other componant refarance. so even if u will change the position of parent parts hole, then second part will be automaticaly update, and u can see the holes in part also

I want to cutting holes in an assembly and not appearing in the part files same Solidworks. Is there a similar way in Catia?

The answer given by Bruce is perfect...In ProE or Creo you have to make the assembly feature a part level feature through the intersect tab.
You can also access the intersect option by right clicking on the feature in the model tree of the assembly.
