Wire/Component Marks to increment if multiple in a row

Question asked by Maximilian Kubicki on Sep 24, 2015

I would like to set up my components that it has the root, the sheet number, the row number, and then an additional number that starts at one and increments if there is already a component of the same root in that row. For example say I have fuse F3121 (fuse on sheet 3, row 12 and it is the first fuse in that row) and I place a second fuse further down in the same row. I'd like that fuse to automatically be labeled F3122. But if I put a fuse in row 15 on that sheet I want it to be label F3151, ignoring the other two fuses sense they are in different rows. I'd also like a similar behavior with wire numbers.


I already know how to get the sheet number (FOLIO_TAG) and row number (ROW_ORDERNO) parts to work, but I haven't found a way to do the last part. Does anyone have any advice for this?
