    Hi All,

    Does anyone have a simple example of skill code that selects data from an Allegro Board file and then writes the selected data to a mechanical symbol...?

    Thanks in advance....

    Hi,

    I have some code to do this but it's quite extensive.
    What are you trying to do?

    Cheers, Dave

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks again for the response...

    I want to build a complex BOM chart as a format symbol to be called back in to BRD files...

    OK, That's not too hard.
    I will send you some code on Monday. (It's Saturday here)

    Cheers, Dave

    Hi, See the attached script. Note that your design is closed while the format symbol is created - so you should save before running the code. Cheers, Dave
