Luo,
        one of my first thoughts points me toward something that has bitten
me recently. Do you by chance have any pads that are one layer (top, bottom,
etc.) with a drill hole? Protel99SE has a problem with these drill
definitions where your pad is not a multilayer pad. I do not know that it
will show up in the manner you have described but it is a possibility. What
does your drill report say (*.drr)? In the case that I cite, the drill
report should give the correct count of drill sizes.

        If you get the correct drill report and you have single layer pads
with drill holes, change the pads to multilayer and use the padstack to
eliminate the pads on layers that you don't want pads. (i.e. set the
padstack pad dimensions to "0" for the layers where you don't want a pad.)

Sincerely,
