Has anybody found a way to have Allegro Schematic Capture (any version) automatically open a BOM in LibreOffice Calc rather than MS Excel? You can do the normal ASCII BOM creation and then open LibreOffice Calc and do the usual import, but that is a lot of extra steps. Would like to leave MS Office behind as it has become a pig and a SAAS financial pain. No more stand alone MS Office products after Office 2019!
Is Cadence even discussing the ability of users to choose what package they want to open their BOMs?
Cadence uses a direct API call to Microsoft Excel to capture CIS BOM Data.
Its worth a $120 Excel license to talk to it. There's a lot of cool stuff you can do with Excel.
