how to change origin in catia v5?

I hv created a solid square block and made holes in it. Now i wanted to find coordinates of all holes with respect to my first hole. So i wanted to make my first hole's centre as my origin but i failed in that. Can any one tell me how to do that..
Thanks in advance

Yes it is possible both in part design and also in drafting.

Another way is to use an assembly, and move (constrain) the part with the hole so that the hole is centered on the origin axis. Then measure to get your coordinates.

The part origin (Absolute Axis System) is fixed and cannot be moved. So, one solution is to modify all geometry and reposition the part so the hole is centered on the axis.

But a better and easier method is to add a new axis system with it's origin at the center of hole. Then choose that axis when measuring the coordinates.

I can give you small hint before tutorial ready. All things related with creating view in drawing :)
