PLCompare.vbs (Executed in Expedition) will compare a PartLister .txt output to an Expedition Design. This script requires you to modify the column start/stop locations for QTY, PN (Partnumber), and REF (RefDes) at the top of the script, as shown below - where green is start and red is stop:


'modify these to match start & end columns of the qty, PartNumber and comprefdes fields in the file

Dim QTY: QTY=Array(4,8)

Dim PN: PN=Array(10,22)

Dim REF: REF=Array(24,38)


This will generate a PLCompare.txt file to the pcb\LogFiles folder, making it accessible to FileViewer.
