Hi, 

I don't think it is possible to extend Occ Note field length.

If your use case permits, there are other means to capture data at occurrence level. 

 

 

Thanks

Thanks for reply.

 

In my use case,it must fill in more than 160 characters.

 

is there any idea?

Re: How to increase the length of the note type

Hi,

 

I have not come across a way to extend the field length of occ notes beyond 160 chars.

 

you could try setting up a custom form with custom attribute which allows text more than 160 chars. Then compound that form attribute to occurrence.

Your solution

"you could try setting up a custom form with custom attribute which allows text more than 160 chars.Then compound that form attribute to occurrence"

 

in this way,same item in different BOM will display same attribute value

I want to display different values

Re: How to increase the length of the note type

I understand. We had the same issue.

 

In you case, if it is okay to share, can you please describe the use case for occurrence specific information?

In my use case:

 

I save the schematic(cadence16.6) to TC(11.2.2.1) through the cadence integration tool(TcEDA2.0.1).The EDA BOM has many same item,like this

20170419133825.pngI will merge the same item through the program,but in the WH column,the merged value will exceed 160 characters
