Thanks,
I am partially there, I have not selected that option to use ORCAD PORT
Setting.
That may in part be my problem?? Will look into it further.
What is happening is a bus of 0-15 is only seeing half of the nets across
sheets,
the nets are wires and there does not appear to be any overlap or mis
connection
of any of the ports involved.
The only way I seem to be able to get the connection to take place is
to delete and re-add the net labels in protel to those not happening.
This seems to work. But thanks I will look into it further.
Thanks
Bob
