MicroStation CONNECT Edition Help


Before you delve too far into creating tables, you need to have a good understanding of the MSCATALOG table. It is the master table that tells MicroStation information about the database tables available for links to graphic elements. It is opened every time you connect to a database and contains a row for each table that may be linked to the design. There is only one MSCATALOG table for each database.

Note: Any table in a database that will be linked to graphic elements in a DGN file must have a corresponding row in MSCATALOG. However, through SQL statements, any table in the database can be accessed from MicroStation even if it does not have a corresponding row in MSCATALOG.
