Hello, to All,
I have just finished a project and started generating reports. In *LAYOUT* When I tried to generate 'Parts List' the contents of the report are:
BOARD STATISTICS REPORT -- LabReference_PCB_Filter_Layout_071514.pcb -- Wed Jul 16 15:41:23 2014
Job Design Time: 20:39
Part Types: 26
Parts TopSide: 127 BottomSide: 0 Total: 127
Drilled pads: 296 Undrilled pads: 0 Total: 296
Via Name : STANDARDVIA Via Count : 25
Signal Nets: 42
Connections Routed: 221 Partially 0 Unrouted: 0 Total: 221
...... and so on.
I.e., the contents of my 'Parts List' is actually a Statistics report. Not only that but the listed project pcb - LabReference_PCB_Filter_Layout_071514.pcb - is *incorrect*, as is the date - *July 16 2014*. I tried this several times with the same results. I then went to a second machine which is running a newer version of PADS and oddly enough a 'Parts List' report is not even an option, only 'Parts List 1' and 'Parts List 2'.
'Parts List 1' and 'Parts List 2' show up *correctly* in their respective formats.
I guess the first question would be, what information is contained in 'Parts List' which may not show up in 'Parts List 1' and 'Parts List 2' ?
Also, is there a VB script that generates 'Parts List', and if so, what is it named (aside from possibly the obvious) ?
