In my experience, I have found that Protel does not care what is in the
number field.  I have used a1, b1, etc, before, and it works fine.

I have also used numbers like can1, can2, etc, for tuners.

As long as your schematic footprint pin numbers match your PCB footprint
pad numbers, Protel is happy.

Hope this helps,

Mike.

I think the answer is you have to have the Pin 'Named' as 1a, 1b etc but
the
pin 'number' as the usual 1, 2, 3 etc. Then to make it clear on the
schematic you show the name but hide the number, set this in the dialog box
as you place the pins in the symbol editor. All you have to do then is
ensure that the foot print pin numbering matches the schematic pin
numbering
(most important, check and re-check)
