Export data from Search results

Question asked by Lynne Toland on May 19, 2020

This is a Solidworks Electrical 2D question.

I want to export info from the Search tool into a spreadsheet that includes the ref des and book/sheet information of the search results.

The data I need does not seem to be available through the reports.

Specifically, I want to search for components with a specific character in the ref des and get a list of drawing sheets where that component is.

We have a system of assigning Ref Des that are co-ordinated with our mechanical design. If I add a component and don't know what the ref des should be, I name it with a ? in the name, for example CB?1.

Now I would like to collect that data and confer with Mechanical to nail down all those numbers.

Any suggestions appreciated!
