Parent page: Schematic Commands

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 the component name and a description for each component, 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 properties for each component.

You can view the properties for a component through the Properties panel. To load the panel with this information, click on the entry for the component in the Design Item ID list of the SCH Library panel.


  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.
