Is there any way to take a parts list generated in a CAD program and import it directly to Macola. The CAD program is able to generate comma seperated data or normal txt files.

There is no import specific to any CAD programs. You'd need to either manipulate the exported list from your CAD program to fit the Product Structure flat file format, or pull your list into Excel or Access and then use queries to "insert" the new records.

You can see the product structure flat file format if you go to System Manager, Processes, Export Distribution Files, and then choose the product structure file. The file will be placed in the data directory of the company you are logged in to (ie x:\Macola\Data_23)

We have looked at third party software from Aimasoft, which enables linking CAD drawings with Macola BOM. I've forgotten the details but the demo we saw last October at the Exact users conference in Chicago looked pretty good.

We had an external program written to do exactly this. It was well worth it in time saved and mistakes missed, plus it immediately pointed out components used that did not yet have item numbers. If you are interested, contact me. dweiss@dataprobe.com
