Hello! I'm testing the SVNDbLib feature of Altium Designer 14.1. The database resides on a MySQL-Server and the symbols/footprints are in a SVN repository. The only problem i have is that Add/Edit/Delete Component are not available in the Table Browser context menu (as like here: http://techdocs.altium.com/display/ADOH/Working+with+Version-Controlled+Database+Libraries#WorkingwithVersion-ControlledDatabaseLibraries-ModifyingaDatabaseTablethroughtheSVNDBLibFile ). Thus it seems i have to use an external program to edit components in the database, which seems a bit of an overkill to teach a designer if he just wants to copy a resistor to get a new value. Everything is set up according to the instructions found here: http://techdocs.altium.com/display/ADOH/Using+Components+Directly+from+Your+Company+Database and the document linked above. Everything else is up and running, i can place parts, and editing of symbols and footprints from the Table Browser in the SVNDbLib-Editor works, as well as updating them with the Storage Manager. I also tested this with an xls-file for the database using a DbLib and a SVNDbLib. Any comments are higly appreciated! Martin
If anybody is experiencing the same problem: Editing the database in Altium's Table Browser is only available with an Access-Database. Connections to other databases are read-only.
There is another Issue: even with an access db Library is only editing of former existent parts available. But it's impossible (testet witch AD10 + AD13) to add a new component. For this it's needed to do it in MS Access.
Are new versions better than this?
Hi We have also an setup with a MySQL Database in the background. It is correct, that you cannot edit/remove/add components within altium itself. We have created an own Website for these things. On this site, we can add/remove/edit all components and we have an integrated wizard which guides you through the process of the component creation.
