Does anyone have, or know of a utility for producing wire way similar to the Din Rail utility?

You can try this file. It has three Panduit wire ducts fudged in. Copy it to
your "c:\documents and settings\...\support\aedata\catalogs\" folder and
overwrite the existing spreadsheet file wddinrl.xls with this one (maybe
copy it to a safe place first!). See if this new file will give you the
results you're looking for.

Here's cut/paste of the sample data. The three fudged-in PANDUIT entries are shown. Follow this template for AE2004 and see if it works for you.

Let me try again, the cut/paste method didn't come across the way I
expected. Here is the Excel data in a ".csv" format. Call up in Excel and
saveas wddinrl.xls.

Hi, was this ever resolved?
I am using WD v17, and have copied the panduit info into the wddinrl.xls file.
When I go to insert the wireway, wd doesn't list the new entry. the manual says there are entries in the catalog tables, but I don't see um.
What is the info on the subsequent sheets in that file that list each din rail catalog number with
SLOTQTY,ORG_LISt,ORG_LIST,ORG_LIST?

Update, I got this to work.
At least in Via WD 17,It seems the wddinrl.xls file needs to live in the local WD folder, not on a network WD folder -I recreated the xls file with Nate's Panduit data copied in.
I think there was a problem with extra commas being in the description area, which moved the data into the wrong colums, and I am guessing that the quotations in the description caused some difficulty with WD reading the excel file.
So right now it pretty much works. I hope this pertains to the way AutoCAD generates these components.
