PCB Matrix had a tool that is similar. See here: http://www.tsieda.com/data/SymbolWizard.pdf
PCB Matrix was bought my Valor and then Mentor bought Valor. Maybe Mentor can make this wizard available!
I found this cool library tool. Schematic Symbol Wizard It is free to try
Hi I have tried to find the PCB Matrix tool, however this now links to PCB Library expert, probably because MG have taken over valor.
The scheamtic symbol wizard looks promising through and I have requested a copy of the software to evaluate to see if it does what we require.
Thanks for these links/pointers.
Have got a copy of ECAD part wizard from SamacSys and this does not look too bad.
Only exports the cells for PADS whereas ideally I require these for Expedition flow.
However it does create the schematic symbols for DxDesigner.
Only problem I have found so far is that the range of parts available is very limited and those parts requested by our designers are not available in the drop down lists.
You can request parts that they do not have. Just click on the Part request button. I requested a part and got it made in under 24 hours. Give it a try.

Thanks - I have had some good feedback from SamacSys, there is a specific part which was not listed in there default settings,but they have put this on their part request list, so I will wait to see what I get back.
