Running Calibre LVS on layout/schematic designed in OpenAccess

I am trying to run LVS on layout and schematic files both designed in OpenAccess (OA) using Cadence 6.1.4. I chose "OPENACCESS" format in layout and "export from schematic viewer" in schematic. I get an error message saying "ddMapGetFileViewType: You are trying to run a CDB executable on an OA library file 'sch.oa'." It seems like a schematic problem, not a layout problem. I could not find any option in Calibre to force it to import OA instead of CDB. I use Calibre v2008.4_28.20 and was wondering if this version does not support OA. Any help is appreciated!
