No, this is in the 99SE design I am preparing for DXP2004 import. When opened in DXP, the compiler chokes because of the power port connectivity issues (assumes demotion to local net for power) and also chokes on the multiple sheet entries. The top sheet can be easily rewired to remove the sheet entry issues but the connectivity issue is driving me nuts. I actually enjoy these challenges but when time is against you it takes the fun out of it :-) I have been collecting some notes, caveats and precautionary tactics to move the last of these 99SE designs I have to DXP2004 (about 60 or so) which is why I have been re-evaluating my workaround of wiring up power nets on the top sheet (thus bypassing the assumed 'global' power connectivity). The end document will be formed to a procedure for others to follow and it is a lot faster and easier to edit / prepare it in 99SE than in DXP2004. Although I have had to put this aside for the moment, currently my train of thought is that a wire label or other additional net naming object is present or exists on some other sheet than the id key.sch one, possibly hidden or moved under a component with the POE touching a pin / wire which is already connected to a power object. This would make sense to me. It is not the first time I have seen the error markers in 99SE placed at the conflict target position and not the source (due to position in netlist). So I intend to pick through the netlist first then all sheets one at a time.
