Import multiple XMLs into Creo Cabling

Import multiple XMLs into Creo Cabling

Is it possible to import multiple XML files, from Creo Schematics, into a single Creo Parametric Cabling component? In the past, my attempts to import multiple XMLs has caused the the new one to overwrite the old one.  I figured out it's possible to manually copy and past information from one XML into another using Notepad++. It's an inelegant solution and prone to error, but it does seem to work. Does anyone else have any better ideas?

Thank you for your reply.  So far, it looks like my original observation (i.e. use Notepad++ to copy/paste from one into another) seems to be the best solution.  And your reply seems to validate that.  So thank you.

Hi , 

the sort answer is yes , the long one is : 

  • if xml files contain parameters/info which referring to same objects (i.e. same connectors, same routed items or same spools) it will be overwrite/updated . 
  • if xml files are different - i.e. referencing to different connectors, spools or routed items it will accumulate to exist logical data in the model    
  • it does not work smooth :
    • if connector appear in 1st xml but does not appear in the 2nd one - it's ref model might disappear from auto designate dialog (but it still be designated):

    • spools which are marked as come from logical data will be editable (will behave as created manually in Creo ) if they are not in the 2nd xml

these issues can be workaround by including all spools and connectors in all xml - assuming difference between xml files are the routed items (connectivity between different connectors, routing of different wires/cables)
