I´m having some strange problems when verifying my schematic design with my databook.
The component is in Databook (excel file) and in centrla library, but shows a "Zero Matches" message.
Can anyone bring some light here?
take a look at my answer regarding your question "Change all components with PN to another component of the databook" https://communities.mentor.com/thread/23290
As soon as any property changes within your databook after you placed that component into the design (even only changing from lower case character to upper case) you will face that issue. Reason is (as far as I understand) that when you verify your design, Databook loads
and will compare those two sets of information. One option is to create a second databook config file that loads only your unique part ID.
Another option is to double klick on the part that has zero matches; in the verification window a new part will appear, showing a view similar to the databook table. Copy your unique ID, then select the header row with your right mouse button and select "remove all conditions". afterwards enter the unique ID you copied into the relevant field and hit enter. Now you have to select the row (it should be only one) and on the right hand select one of the for symbols (I think it's the last one highlighted below) Now the status shoulld be "OK after Update". Then you will have to update your design. (Sorry, can't provide more pictures here, we got some issues wit our internal network today.)

It could be as simple as an extra space character in one of the databook entries. Or another typo.
Hi John, thanks for the info.
This space character would be in Part Number, Symbol or Cell Name fields, right?
I understand that space character in other field should not be a problem.
Nonetheless, when I select the verification button I get the following error:
could you please confirm?
Hi Georg, thanks for the info.
So, the message of "An ODBC error ocurred2 is because of this also?
OK, so I have done it and it works!
And yes, the error message disappears :-)
Thanks a lot Georg!
One more question Georg, is it possible to proceed with the update of the components without removing their designator?
If I understand correctly, your Reference Designators (in your picture above in the red marked line, it would be C5314, C5315 and C5309 ?) are set back to "C?" - is that right?
I just took a short survey and found this one: https://communities.mentor.com/thread/16350 ; Gary_Lameris added some screenshots that might help you.
So after trying the previous solution I find that several components are not being updated and still show the "Zero Match" mesage.
To solve this I directly tried to remove the component and add it from the library, nonethlees I still have this problem.
Can anyone help me here?
How should I proceed?
