    Warnings Creating a Netlist Reply
    Hello i'm trying to make a PCB desing using the Cadence OrCAD Release 16.3, when i finish doing my schematic on Capture, and i try to create a netlist, there is a warning message that refers me to the "netrev.lst" file, i open it and there are this 2 errors: #1 WARNING(SPMHNI-192): Device/Symbol check warning detected. WARNING(SPMHNI-194): Symbol 'TSOT23-5' for device 'TLV70025DDCT_TSOT23-5_DBV5' not found in PSMPATH or must be "dbdoctor"ed. #2 WARNING(SPMHNI-192): Device/Symbol check warning detected. WARNING(SPMHNI-194): Symbol 'PAG64' for device 'ADS1298_PAG64_ADS1298' not found in PSMPATH or must be "dbdoctor"ed I'm using some .dra, .psm and .pad files, that i downloaded from texas instrument webpage, when i finish connecting the circuit i change the PCB FOOTPRINT on the cadence caracteristics of each device, but when i try to place the parts on the PCB Editor, there is First: no preview, and Second: there is not part to place.

    Close PCB Editor. Find the Off-Line DB Doctor, Start>Programs>Cadence><release>>(OrCAD)PCB Editor Utilities>DB Doctor. Browse to the directory that contains the donwloaded symbols, change the FIle Type to DRA and select a DRA file, change the file path to be *.DRA rather than <symbol>.DRA, this will get "all" the DRA files in the directory, check all the DB Dcotor boxes, and click on Check to get the symbols checked. This should get the symbols checked and updated as required, or give you a log to say what's up with the DRA files. Once they check out OK, they should be usable, start PCB Editor and reload the netlist.
