Jim,
        just for my own reference, I thought that ECAM can import the
netlist from the CAD database as well? Yes, I knew it would generate it but
then you are back to square one where the Fab shop may as well generate the
netlist at their end. Complete with any possible errors which are in the
Gerbers.
