Today we are taking a look at working with wire types in the area of renaming column headers for our wire type dialog boxes which leads into the tools for creating new wire types and layers also converting existing wires in our design. The reason for the post is to be able to easily create additional information in our projects we work on. When thinking about wires we may need to know if the wires we are using are in stock, long lead items or even a special order. These are just some of the ideas I came up with for column headings. I am sure all of you have many different ways you may customize your charts. I would love to hear about them please post some ideas to the linkedin Electrical User Group:

Renaming Column Headings in Reports – AutoCAD Electrical

I was talking with a new user of AutoCAD Electrical yesterday and he was in the process of configuring the look and feel of AutoCAD Electrical. One area that he needed to change was how the column heading information appeared on the Bill of Material. So let’s quickly run through the steps:

1. Run your BOM report as usual
2. When the report is displayed click on – Change Report Format

3. From the left window pane select any of the fields in my example – Catalog
4. In the middle of the dialog box near the bottom you will find Change Field Name/Justification, here you will see the field you selected to change
5. Type in the new text you want the column displayed as
6. Click OK

Let’s take a look
