Do you mean the *description* field comes back unlabled? On all Cisco
equipment I have tried, cfgmaker will come back with the information you
have set on the Cisco for the description of each port.

Do a:

conf t
int [whatever]
description Port 1 to somewhere

Then run cfgmaker. It should see "Port 1 to somewhere" as the description
for interface "whatever".

If you don't set the description the best you'll get from the switch is
the int0/1/2:3 type of response. It can't query info that the switch
doesn't have.
