Hello,I am getting a error while generating netlist.Can anyone tell me what this error message means ?Please note that, at first I was using a part in Capture Library which I modified and then I used it in the design. At that time , I was getting the below mentioned error while generating netlist. But when I generated a totally new part in capture library and used it in my design , I was able to generate netlist without any error.Can anyone help in this matter ...

Load thepstxprt.dat file into an Excel spread sheet and look in or near line 38. This will point you to what the problem is.Regards,Harold
I am attaching some part of the pstprt.dat file as can be seen below . I am not able to point what exactly the problem is......SECTION_NUMBER 1 '@DESIGN-GE.SCHEMATIC1(SCH_1):INS54@CONNECTOR.CON16A.NORMAL(CHIPS)': C_PATH='@\design-ge\.schematic1(sch_1):ins54@connector.\con16a.normal\(chips)', PRIM_FILE='.\pstchip.dat', SECTION=''; PART_NAME ALARM CANCEL 'SW ROTARY 1P-5W_4_4LEGDOME':; --------------- Line 38 SECTION_NUMBER 1 '@DESIGN-GE.SCHEMATIC1(SCH_1):INS1395@DESIGN27.SW ROTARY 1P-5W_4.NORMAL(CHIPS)': C_PATH='@\design-ge\.schematic1(sch_1):ins1395@design27.\sw rotary 1p-5w_4.normal\(chips)', PRIM_FILE='.\pstchip.dat', SECTION=''; PART_NAME MARK/ 'SW ROTARY 1P-5W_4_4LEGDOME':; SECTION_NUMBER 1 '@DESIGN-GE.SCHEMATIC1(SCH_1):INS821@DESIGN27.SW ROTARY 1P-5W_4.NORMAL(CHIPS)': C_PATH='@\design-ge\.schematic1(sch_1):ins821@design27.\sw rotary 1p-5w_4.normal\(chips)', PRIM_FILE='.\pstchip.dat', SECTION=";Thanks,Prajakta.
Can you delete 'SW ROTARY 1P-5W_4_4LEGDOME' this part.And place it once again from the schematic library.It may get solved. If not recreate the part once againg and try it.Regards,Satya
Yes , I did the same thing , recreated the part and the problem was solved. But I was just trying to get what role exactly the files E:\Orcad\allegro/pstchip.datE:\Orcad\allegro/pstxprt.dat have to play while generating netlist ....and due to what consequences errors associated with these files may generate ...Regards,Prajakta.
