After 20+ years of being happy with Logic, I am trying to switch to DxDesigner. (Not Fun)
How do I delete parts from PADS Databook that were made in error?
PADS Databook is linked to some kind of database, in our case a MS-Access file. You can erase the erroneous entry there. But be sure to backup your database file beforehand. I can't tell you what happens, when you erase the entry of a part you allready use in your design, so be carefull.
Afterwards you should run "Update Libraries" from the Tools menu.
I know that if the part is in the design already and you delete it as a file, the symbol and attributes stay in the design. There is a version of the symbol and attributes that is stored in the iCDB file.
So I need to use MS-Access to open the database and delete the parts there?
Yes, you will need MS Access (as far as your database file-extension is "mdb" or "accdb"). If you don't have full installation of Access you could try Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime: Download Microsoft Access 2016 Runtime from Official Microsoft Download Center
If you are using the Starter Library, you open the relevant table, select the row and delete it.
I don't know about the limitations of the runtime installation versus the full installation.
I hope this helps you,
It depends whether you have PADS Databook connected to a Database or whether it points to files on disk. If it points to files, simply delete the file and do as Georg said and do an Update Libraries.
