Circuit Builder: Symbol not accepting info from Database.

The attached symbol is what I am using for my circuit. If I select Configure and then go to the Lookup Table and select one of the records, it fills the information into the dialog box but it is not transferred to the symbol upon insertion. If after the circuit is built, if I use the Lookup Table, select the same record, it fills in the appropriate attributes in the symbol.


I have set up in the .xls file

LOOKUP_CMD=(c:ace_cb_catalog_lookup  @table @mfg @cat @asm nil)



The dialog box has no trouble finding the table.


I have also included the ace_circuit_builder.xls in case it helps.


Thanks in advance.
