I used MySQL as my local compent database.
Everything goes right until generating BOM.
A Error occurs as :
ERROR(ORCIS-6156): Unknown database field type
I am not sure what's wrong with OrCAD Capture CIS 16.6 has anyone met the same problem?
Maybe something worng with my Data type set in Mysql database,but I am not sure.
Thank your for reply
I have find someway to solve this probelm
I can copy all the properties from Part Proerty Editor and then paste it to Excel. Then I can Edit Excel file to get BOM.
Also there is another efficient way to generate BOM from Tools->Bill of materials , It seems do not care what's wrong with Database Type error.I find it is efficient to generate a BOM file with modifing the export file format like :
In property String
also you can write the format as what you want,and then import to Excel.
All roads to Roma.
Good luck to who may meet the same problem!
I tried but it works!
I tried it just a minute ago in the fllowing steps:
I changed an Inductor's price in MySQL Database and then I find the inductor in my schematic.
Right-click the Inductor then select link database part and then open CIS Explorer
double-click the selected compent in CIS Explorer a update symbal warnning appear , click ok.
After above steps,I open the inductor's property finding that the price was changed.
So everything works fine with Tools>Bill of Materials .
