Adds multiple components to a specification. When adding multiple components you must define a data table for each component when finished.

Displays a list of components that can be added to a specification. You can select multiple components by selecting as many check boxes as necessary, or by using the plus + sign to select individual components in each group.

Group Name

Specifies a group name for the set of components you want to add. You can select a component type for the group, type a new name in the Group Name box. If you select a set of components and then set a Group Name to a specific component group, those components display in that components list. For example, if you select Crosses, Tees, and Caps from Component, and then set the Group Name to Caps, all the components that you selected display in Caps in the specifications Main Spec List View. If you do not want a component to display in a different component listing, then select only the component and the Group Name associated with that component.
