    Creating Bom variants on a schematic page with multiple instances Reply

    Hi

    I use a schematic page which has multiple instances in Orcad.

    Some of the componets i need different values depending on configuration, but orcad responds "The component you are trying to link is connected to an instance with multiple occurences. Linking of components with multiple occurrenses can only be done from the core design".

    Is it only so? Can't orcad handle variants on multiple instances?

     Best Regards

    Magnus

     Hi,

    Open the design, in the command window, use the following tcl command:

     SetOptionString AllowOccLinkVariant TRUE

    Now do the linking.

    Thanks

     The above Tcl command will work on 16.5 release and 16.3 ISR 39 onwards.
