MajorMac posted a topic in General Topics - The LoungeI am attempting to use EPLAN P8 (v.2.9) to import details from a 'holy grail' excel sheet of a cable list with terminal tags and numbers (source and target for each cable). To do this I began importing details in a trial and error fashion through the pre-planning menu to the pre-planning navigator. I have several questions. Question (1) Has anyone else tried to do this? In the process of importing from the excel sheet I have not been able to successfully assign source and target for each cable object. It shows up on the synchronization dialog after I work through the field assignment but it disappears after import. ( I do not fully understand the proper structures, definitions, properties and levels to get what I want). I do understand if I import source and target terminals, and cable objects separately, then I can place on the detailed view and source and target are assigned then. Question (2) Does anyone know how to assign source and target to a cable object in pre-planning 'by import'? (Reason being that the excel file is huge and manual assigning isn't feasible). On one of my attempted field assignment schemes I was able to have cable, source terminal, and target terminal, all on different levels (not actually assigned as source and target for the cable object btw.). However the result for source and target on the report (planning overview, form: f40_006) had all of the designations of the tree structure from the upper levels. For example, cable: HAC4401, source: HAC4401 X1:5, target: HAC4401 X1:5 TB1:5. (Where X1:5 is source terminal and TB1:5 is target terminal). Question (3) Does anyone know how to create a 'branch' or 'fork' in the tree structure in the preplanning navigator so that both source and target terminals (planning objects) are on the same level and so do not inherit each others details? There's a bunch of info in reading the above I know, but if anyone can shed some light on this it would be much appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance, MajorMac
EPLAN error after freezing
Robror posted a topic in Control Panel BuildingHi there! I was working on EPLAN Electric P8 when suddenly, the program stopped working (mouse didn't barely move, couldn't click) which resulted in a blue screen after trying to close the program (didn't manage to force stop of the VMWARE process where I execute it). So, the thing is I can open projects and all, but everytime I close a component window I get this error window: (S275024) Couldn't find setting USER.SYSTEM.GUI.Control.MGGrid.DeviceTagGUI.116.1002.LastIndex.index. And it happens when other different windows (for example when opening Layer Manager I get the same error with LayerManger instead of DeviceTag. Also, if I try to close Eplan by clicking the red X of the window, It won't close. What can I do? There's very little info about this error code in the net and I'm running out of ideas. Thanks in advance!
Need some EPLAN help
Roze posted a topic in Control Panel BuildingHi, Dunno where else to ask, so I'll just vent my question here. I've recently gotten into EPLAN and since there is like zero google results on anything regarding it, I'd be grateful to receive some help. 1: I'm trying to put down some Siemens Sirius ACT command points onto the drawings, but I cant seem to link them... See. https://imgur.com/a/v03chzQ 2: Can I change the coloring of wires to match what the real wires is going to have?

Eplan Symbol overview
Tijana posted a topic in Control Panel BuildingHi everyone! I am working on a project for the US market, but the request we had from our customer was that the symbols remain according to IEC, and not NFPA, and that I generate a Symbol overview which contains the used symbols in project. I know how to generate symbol overview with the used symbols, but the problem is that they want that aside to IEC symbol stands the corresponding NFPA symbol, and I have no idea how to do that. I attached an example of the thing that I have to generate. Does anyone have an idea how to do that? Thanks in advance
Eplan - revision information
Tijana posted a topic in Product ReviewsHello everyone! I am new to Eplan, and I am working on a big project on which someone else has worked on before me and almost finished it, but with a lot of technical mistakes and missing peaces. My boss expects me to fix a lot of things, but I have no experience with this software, so I could use some help. The problem is that no revision information (revision date, description, approved by etc) is displayed in this project, and I don't know how to make it appear, and be correct. I have made changes in plot frame and added special texts which should display these data, but I don't know where should I define wanted information (for example, I put special text for "approved by" but I can't seem to find adequate place to write the name of that person)? And, is there a way for Eplan to generate automatically revision description, based on the changes I made? From all said, it is obvious that I have no idea at all how revisions work, so any help would be enormously appreciated Thank you in advance! Cheers

In Eplan, is it possible to create a comment that references a string?
ct8356 posted a topic in General Topics - The LoungeIn Eplan, you can put a comment on an input, such as "CLAMP SHOT BOLT 1 EXTENDED". Is it possible to make this comment reference a string (or combination of strings)? The reason I would like to do this, is so that if I want to change the first word of multiple comments, I can do this by changing only one string.
