    Modifying $Location in Concept using a script Reply

    We set a prefix to our components in a design based on sheet number. 

    Is anyone aware of an existing Concept HDL script to modify the location property?  We use reuse blocks so this would need to be done at with occurance edit mode enabled.  This is iniatially set by using the ref des pattern feature during export physical ...

    REF_DES_PATTERN   ($PHYS_DES_PREFIX)($PAGE _NUM)[0-9](01)

    When we reorder sheets it is a manual effort to modify the location (ref des) to start with the new sheet number.  We always use two digits for the sheet number.  i.e. U0101, U0203, U2301, etc.

    This is possible either using the global change commands or via Skill. Either method is too much to explain in an email. You can contact me off line if you need some help. Cheers, Dave
