Do a "File - Export Data - All parts In partition".
Convert the encrypted .hkp file to ASCII type .hkp
Rename everything in a texteditor.
Convert ASCII type .hkp to encrypted .hkp.
Import Part Data.
How can I convert the hkp file in ASCII and back is there a dataconvert tool?
We are still using EE2007.5 and we have the "encryptdecrypt" license for Dataconvert.
Years ago you could call Mentor and ask for this license feature for free.
I do not know what they say if you ask for it.
An automation script is able to rename partnames in bulk mode. There is a utility created by Mentor here~
Thank You. Can you tell me where I can find such kind of utility and how it works?
Thank you for that recommendation.
I´ve installed the advanced library editor now, but unfortunately I´m not able to do the change from COG to C0G in the part name.
I used from the menu bar the PDB -> Part Properties -> Modify Existing Property -> Part Partition (capacitor) -> select all -> property (@name) -> original value (COG) -> new value (C0G)
But it doesn´t work can you tell me if there is something wrong?!
Thank you in advance for your help!
The utility is based on the automation. For changing part name, you may contact the author for adding this renaming feature. Also you can try to write it by yourself.
