Good day all,
I have a thru-hole board in Orcad Layout. I have completed a smt conversion of the board in Orcad PCB Editor. While updating the schematic I spread it across multiple sheets since we can only print on 11x17. I physically highlighted each trace from one schematic to the other and found no errors....Now my problem...I would like to do a netlist comparison to get a more trustworthy comparison in Exce.. I created viewable netlsts using the "Other" tab and and the orWirelist.dll. However the output is not in alphanumeric order for each file. When I line up the net names in Excel the components do not match because one file listed them as a vertical list U1, R43, R44, FL1,U2 and the other as vertical list R43, U1, R44, U2, FL1. So it seems I am left with option to copy and paste the net name in the cell to the left of each component and then do a sort... and there are a lot of nets over the two schematics. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make this task easier?
Thank you in advance,
FYI, I began trying all the other .dll outputs for netlisting and found one that lists what I was looking for... the net name, ref desg, and pin # each on its own line.

If you have two seperate dsn files then there is two apps (one free and one paid for) that will do design compares. Take a look at http://www.orcadmarketplace.com/Publications.aspx, Orcad Apps tab, see all and all then look for GraserWare - DesignCompare and MakeCapApp - ECOCompare
