    Hi Veera,

    In IC613 vias are no longer instances but OA objects, so they have a different interface for creation.  Try the dbCreateVia() function in combination with something like dbFindViaHeaderByName() (or techFindViaDefByName(), or techFindViaSpec()) to obtain the via definition.  I'm not sure about changing one via placement to another, you may need to store the parameters from the original placement for use with the second?

    I hope that this answers your question.

    Best regards,

    Lawrence.

    Please read the Forum Guidelines (this suggests that posting on a 3 year old thread is not a good idea).

    There's an example of using dbCreateVia in the documentation. Did you look at that? Type "cdnshelp" at the command line, or use the Help-> menus in Virtuoso. It's searchable, so you can search for dbCreateVia

    Andrew.
