We use DxDatabook within DxDesigner/Expedition flow (verison 7.9.1) to place schematic parts with the addition data being stored in a Mentor Graphics DMS database. (version


We have a requirement to add a new catalog to the database for new category of IC (74AVC logic).


I can add the new catalog to the DMS database ok and populate this with the required information (part numbers, size, temperature, manufacturer), this is ok.


However now I need to add this catalog to the DxDatabook configuration file (.dbc) and to put simply I don't know how to achive this.


Can someone please explain how to add the new catalog to the DxDatabook config file (.dbc) so that the part are recognised when being placed in DxDesigner.
