Does anybody know how to access PartsDataBase using the PDB file, rather then using PCB or LMC file? Sometimes, I have PDB file only and want to access it through Automation. For example, I have just completed the schematic and packaged it. So I have PartsDB.pdb only (in the \integration\layout directory), without PCB or LMC file. However, pdbEditor.OpenDatabaseEx(<PCB or LMC file>, <True or False>) doesn't allow me to specify the PDB file.
