I use a basic scripts in powerlogic to generate the BOM for my designs, the scripts works well in PADS2005 and PADS2007.
But when I update my pads to 9.0,It have a trouble with chinese fonts.
Normally,the components have a "Description" field,and I will use chinese fonts to fill this field. in powerlogic it display very
well.but when I use the scripts to export this field,the content with chinese fonts will display in strange symbol.
So I test "PADS logic Scripts Wizard" bring your own with PADS, the Description field also have strange symbol in exported
files,what ever those files in TXT or EXCEL format.
I think this bug will also been happend in other non-english countrys. Today I update my pads to 9.1,and the bug also exist.
I use this function to get the components attributes.
Function AttrValue (comp As Object, atrName As String) As String
If comp.Attributes(atrName) Is Nothing Then
AttrValue = ""
Sorry for my english!
