    Find ext_artwork and ext_drill Reply

    I'm looking for a way in Skill to extract the setup information for artworks and drill files.  Cadence sets the default values of art (ext_artwork) and drl (ext_drill).  I've written a program to setup the artwork table in the Allegro file but since we use the Cadence default values and or sister company uses different values I would like to know how to extract the values directly from the database.

    Hopefully somebody knows how and can point me in the right direction.

     Many thanks in advance!

    I am pretty certain that you cannot because these settings are User Preferences and they are not stored in the board database but are stored in the "env" file settings, the defaults are used if there are no overriding values in the "env" file.

    Thanks for the feedback.  I'll have to figure another way to set this up.  It may be as simple as getting our sister company to use the same values that we do.
