Ground "pins" on connectors

Question asked by ian.hodnett on Aug 1, 2013

We use a single pin symbol for our multi-way connectors and assign them to slots (see below).

If the connector has ground tabs, we used to name them A, B, C etc (in Board Station) to distiguish them frm signal pins.

 

In EE, we'd obviously like to assign A, B, C etc to the supply (see below):

In the schematic, joined thus (all pins placed but not shown in this snap shot):

When we run package, we get this error:

Any ideas / help / solutions ??
