The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to generate a report listing each component and its corresponding detail, from the active library document.


This command is accessed from the Schematic Library Editor by choosing the Reports » Library List command from the main menus.


After launching the command, an ASCII text file (<LibraryName>.rep) is generated and opened as the active document. The file includes a total count of the components in the library and lists, for each component, the component name and a description if available.

A second file is also created and opened (<LibraryName>.csv) and is referenced in the .rep file. This is a comma-separated value file and contains more detailed information for each component in the library, extracted from the Library Component Properties dialog for each component.


  1. The reports are generated in the same location as the library document. If the source library is part of a project, the reports are added to the Projects panel under the Generated\Text Documents sub-folder. If the source library is open as a free document, the reports are added to the Projects panel under the Free Documents\Documentation\Text Documents sub-folder.
