Shuping,

Why do you want to use the Netlist Load?  Why not simply keep using the 
Update PCB?  Is this an external netlist? Do you have the Schematics?

Does anyone know if splitting a netlist file into subsections works?  In 
other words does loading different netlists, with non-overlapping net 
definitions, work or does Protel clear the old netlist first?  It is so 
long since I have done a netlist load that I can't remember.

It does sound like you have a found a bug.  I should be able to put *any* 
file at all into processes like netlist load and it should behave 
gracefully.  That is it should not crash and it should warn of invalid file 
or bad data.  All import processes, especially where the source data is 
external to the process, should be heavily protected and very defensively 
programmed.  It is not hard to do, tedious but not hard.
