I changed the user field to our internal part number and accidentally moved it location . Do you think it will mess everything?
I am stuck here - When I insert a component and use the secondary catalog with the user field which I changed to include our part number, the user field column I changed doesn't update or fill the attribute properties in the enhanced attribute. Also, when I select my catalog info from the secondary catalog, the ok is greyed out.
This is really holding me up . Please let me know what I am doing wrong?
ACE reserved the first 16 fields for their catalog table structure.
3 user fields are available which you can rename the field column name if necessary but
do not edit the first 16 fields structure in term of order or data type format as these are reserved and can caused error in ACE.
But you can add any additional fields after these 16 fields.
For your secondary catalog, I suspect that there are no any records in the particular family table, so the button is greyed.
I rename the field and move it to the left.
The secondary catalog has a family table for the component but not the default. Or I need to add it to the default catalog too?
Rename the user column name is fine but do not changed the order of the column for the first 16fields.
For the family code if it is a self user defined or it is only used in your secondary catalog, I think you dont need to add them in the default catalog.
Can someone advise why the DR(Drives) database is starting with a USER2 field instead of a USER1 . I usually use the USER1 field for my internal part but with this, it makes it difficult.
Also, when I rename the field to USER1 it still doesn't work. What's the best approach to fix this please? Thx
In Drives "Options" actually uses the User1 field.
You could move the "Options" Column to the user 2 location (move it over to the right).
Then rename the User2 column to your part number.
Before I get a comment that it might bust the connection to the column... yes it probably will, but there are only a few of the drives that actually use that options field so it shouldn't really matter.
(you should still be able to access it in the BOM using User2 after moving it)
I hope this helps,
