    Error 6098 Missing Keyword PARTTYPE when back annotating from PADS

    alex.ballantyne

      Hello,

       

      I'm trying to back annotate reference designators to a DxDesigner schematic from a PADS .eco file.

       

      When I try to do this, I get the following error message:

       

      Error 6098: file Top_Block_Level.asc, line 3: Missing keyword *PARTTYPE*

       

      I can't find any reference to PARTTYPE except in connection with http://supportnet.mentor.com/reference/technotes/public/technote.cfm?id=MG24982

      which relates to PowerPCB.

       

      I'm prepared to jump through hoops like editing the .asc or .eco files to get this to work; it is (I hope) a one off process to order the reference designators now that the placement is complete.

       

      Any ideas what I should be looking for?

       

      Thanks,

       

      Alex.
