David,
        in my present employment I do not even come close to dealing with
these types of issues so I am not the person to ask. I just wondered earlier
if my old Orcad solution to the net bussing problem would have helped
anybody out with their issues on Protel.
        Damn, you know that Protel SCH was virtually undistinguishable from
Orcad in it's early Win 3.1 days (1993) and would even directly read in
Orcad schematics with almost no problem as I remember. Why would they have
departed from that?

Sincerely,

Brad Velander
