Alfonso,
i had the same problem some time ago and i gave up on it. I think i did try
everything but couldn't get it working. I think it is a bug. SPICE just
knows pwl (time/value ..). If the netlist contains pwl(file=...), SPICE does
not know how to handle it. The protel netlister should have inserted the
data from the file into the pwl statement, but it doesn't. I once asked
Protel about it but never got any answer. Try contacting Altium once again
on this matter, just to make sure.
