yep . i am trying to write a protel script that gets the extra info out 
of one of the library fields in the schematic database. that way when i 
create a part i enter the zevatech part name ( that the machine knows 
the dimensions and tape sizes for ) in the protel schematic library. 
 when creating the pick and place file with my script i can split the 
file to top and bottom , get the extra information from the schematic  , 
and send the output to flexprog lto built the p5a files oad in onto the 
machine , do the feeder location assignment and calibration and hit run.

now i have to twiddle both with excel and with the flexprog over and 
over again for every new board i do.
