OrCAD Refdes on hierarchal pages

(1/1)

Pack34:
I'm trying to update a few components on a hierarchal page. However, when I name the part that part number is replicated on all occurances for that page. So I end up with four U59 parts. How do I get the part number to be automatic? I tried using the annotate feature but it ended up renaming all the components in the project.

Any advice?

Uky:
Have you tried pushing occurancies into instances? (Getting rid of the "yellow" lines in the property tables).

I have not personally used ocurrances in hierarchical designs, but rather used annotation prefixes based on page numbers.

How do you do that? I see the yellow lines on the property editor

Neilm:
You may have to reannotate with the annotation set correctly.

nctnico:
I strongly suggest to read the manual in this case c.q. follow a tutorial. There are some specifics to setting up hierarchial schematics in Orcad. Simply annotating is not going to help.
