Hello Ian, i had just looked into your server and it looks like that what i was searching but i cannot use it as it is.
the reason ist simple. as far as i understand your server it does only check ONE object in the schemtic with ONE object in the excel spreadsheet. but i need to check : 1. is the footprint like 0805 the same AND 2. is the value (parttype) 10k the same then if, and only if, both fields are matched i need to copy the stuff from the selected colums to the fileds in the schematic. with yozr implementation i would need to give the parttype names like 10k_0805 but this would not work with the simulator, yes we are silly enough to use this feature :-) , and has the risk that partname and footprint are not identical if the guy who edits the projects is fit enough... Ian, your server goes the way we had thought of writing our own, but no time yet. unfortunately our big database including the part and stuff from the production does not use the name we use in the protel inviroment, f.e. in protel it is tan7243 and in the baan wourld of our production it is called 72*43 ... historical .... so i am thinking of a conversion so that it is just one clic to generate an uptodate excel spreadsheet and a second to update the schematics (with your server if we had the possability for 2 matches ) anyway thanks a lot for your server, i am still looking for a version that has at least 2 matchfields (like the protel update feature) Dipl.-Ing.
