I have so far only created schematics using parts from Part View/CL View in DxDatabook but since I want to automate parts lists I've started looking into using the library view.
I've gotten the hang of how it works and I have set a couple of libraries with all extra properties that I want I and I can script resistor and capacitor libraries into an Access database.
What I don't understand is how I use those libraries when going to a PCB.
If I run package on my schematic, it will tell me that "There is no Part Number: XX in the Parts DataBase...".
This is correct, but how do I get the part numbers from the Access database into the library parts database?
If I look at the Starter libraries available I see that they do have a unique part number for each resistor corresponding to the entries in the database.
Do I really have to duplicate all 1000+ resistor entries back into part editor... manually?!
I can't find any documentation or tutorial mentioning how to do this.
