Why does the V2009 tool for parts count and family count not contain all components and/or families as explained in the FIDES guide 2009. I understand from previous forums that an update of the 2004 COTS spreadsheet to include 2009 changes is not planned, but an excel spreadsheet tool claiming to be 2009 conform, that does not have all parts and families is not good.
Are there any generic family values for fuses and batteries? I have been reading various forums entries on this site and reading through the 2004 & 2009 guides and not found an values. How are the values displayed on the respective calculations in the V2009 tool generated, i can not find them represented in the 2009 guide?
I am interested in performing the calculations for the fuse and battery components seperately and adding them to my project afterwards.
A seperate question; we have had trouble getting the free demo software to work properly on our PC, it gives us a "Table dbo_Version absente!" error, any help would be appreciate. But even if we do manage to get it working, are the fuses and batteries incorporated into this demo version?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
