Componentname with "-"

Hi,

 

we are using CW to import IDF files from PADS.

 

In PADS some of our Components are named with a "-" eg. ERNI-973063.

 

When I import the part ERNI-973063.SLDPRT in the Component Bibliothek CW create a new component with ERNI as Componentname and 973063 as Componentnumber.

 

When I now import the IDF file CW will not found the part and create a new one.

 

Why is this limitation in CW, that Componentnames are splitted or shortend if there are one or more "-" inside the Componentname?

 

How do you handle this limitation in CW? Do you always modify the the componentname afterwards by editing?

 

regards

Bernd
