I am attempting to write a script that will re-annotate the designators in a set pattern in Pads Layout so as to neaten the board design. I discovered that you can read the names using ActiveDocument.Components(x).Name, however it throws an error when I attempt to change the name by assigned that property a new text string (ActiveX Incorrect number of parameters). What must I do or what must I use to accomplish this?

 

I am currently using Pads Layout vX.0
