Hi,

I am using Altium Designer Summer 09. I am working with high pin count components (more than 2000 Pins for a single component).

Usually, I get an excel file with netlables and pin-designators in separate columns. Now I want to assign these netlables/port to component pins automatically (by means of importing ECO or something likes this)

Reference:
In PCAD, we had used ECO Import with "ADD NETNAME...." syntax with component designator, pin designator and netlabel, in result of which all ports/netlabels are assigned automaticall to the components within seconds.

Looking forward for any type of solution for this matter.

Regards,

Maqbool

Hi Dear,

What I found is that smart grid paste option is for PCB LIB component and is used to add "PIN NAMES". My question is about netlables/ports in schematic document.

If I am unable to understand your answer, kindly explain in a bit detail.

Looking forward.

Thank you.

Hi,

As per your first post what i thought is you have pin designator in excel format and you are trying create schematic symbol.
