I am trying to have a custom contact appear as a non-standard value  in a Component Cross-Reference Table format.


Wikihelp says :-

 "CONTACT -  The value of this attribute is the contact's de-energized state (ex: "NO" or "NC" or any text string with an embedded "NO" or "NC" such as "NO-TC".


I can't get any value to appear in the table other than NO, NONC or NC.  "NULL" does stop the cross-reference appearing.


Wikihelp gives an example of 'NO-TC' but I can't get this to work for tabular cross-referencing.  Reports are okay.


Does anyone know any other values that might work?

I see why now - in the Properties>Drawing Properties>cross-references>Table Format tab there are only the three options.  And under Setup (Cross-reference Table Fields to Display) there doesn't appear to be any way to add a custom field.  Does anyone know of a method of adding extra fields?
