Need help with a phantom net in PADS Layout

I am learning to use the PADS design system after 15+ years of working with Protel. I have gotten to the point where I can produce good schematics and PC boards, but now have a question I hope someone can help me with.


I had a schematic design that had a net tied to Pin 13 of a certain part. I needed to move that net over to Pin 12 - so I editied the schematic to make the change. I generated a netlist and imported it into PADS Layout, where I had a routed PC bpard that had the net under discussion tied to Pin 13 of that part.


Now, the part shows both Pin 12 and Pin 13 as connected to that net. I can't see a good way to delete the net connection to Pin 13.


How do I eliminate this wrong connection from the internal netlist? The PCB design is finished except for that error - I suppose i could ignore it, but I don't like ignoring errors...
