Circuit Builder and Multiple catalog

For the life of me I cannot see how to do this.

 

I am able to set the catalog data for a part during insertion by doing this in the LOOKUP_CMD column:

 

(c:ace_cb_catalog_lookup  @table "WAGO" "2002-3201" @asm 1)

TABLE0=TRMS

TITLE0=Terminals

 

Although it seems like I am supposed to be able to isert the information for the Multiple Catalog, I cannot see how to access it.

 

Anyone have any clues?

Looks like I have to recant part of my previous post. I tried with a newly created drawing and the MFG and CAT information that is set up in the spreadsheet did not get inserted in the symbols when inserted.

 

So how is that done? Do I have to create special symbols with this information already preloaded? I am okay with doing that if I have to (would not be the first time I created 2 or more identical symbols with different MFG/CAT data already preloaded...).

 

I just want to make sure I am utilitizing Circuit Builder correctly.
