Error 6098 Missing Keyword PARTTYPE when back annotating from PADS

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.
