The RptCLPadstackTechnologies.vbs script reports each padstack in the Central Library and reports the differences in pad assignments for each user defined Padstack Technology against its Default technology. The output can be a .csv file or a .txt file.


The script may be executed one of two ways:

1) Executed via "mgcscript" in a windows command prompt with the Pathname of the library given as the sole argument:

                "mgcscript C:\VBScripts\RptCLPadstackTechnologies.vbs C:\Libraries\20078\Library.lmc"

2) Open the script in IDE - Library Manager's File->Open Script Form and execute the "Play" button.

The script will write to "RptCLPadTechnologies.csv" or "RptCLPadTechnologies.txt" in the library's LogFile directory. When completed, the ouput file will open in Notepad or the default application for ".csv" files (Usually Excel)..


Update 1: Fixed Problem with Padstack Names containing ",".

Update 2: Extended above fix to Pad Names and Technology Names.
