Being unwise in the ways of OrCad, my assumptions
may be wrong, but File/Import/*.PCB will import a PCB?
If you want to get a "netlist", you should use
Design/Load Nets...

Does OrCad assign a ".PCB" extention to it's netlist.  If
you are new to Protel, you should know Protel uses the
extention ".NET" for netlist, and ".PCB" for pcb design
databases.

Subject: [PROTEL EDA USERS]: importing a netlist to Protel

Using
