    Orcad 9.2: Post Process Spreadsheet does not show any layers (outputs) ? Reply
    Hello,

    In a recent PCB design using Orcad 9.2, when I open the Post Process Spreadsheet, no Layers (outputs) are visible, only the column headings are present.

    Please see attached screenshot.



    I compared with an older working design, and found that the older design had, in the Gerber Preferences, the 'Gerber Creation' group grayed out, while the faulty design did not have it grayed out.
     
    I tried several things & fiddled with a few settings, to no avail. 

    How can I get the ouputs / layers to show up in post process ?

    Thank You.

    Open the MAX file with the setiings, right-click in the "Plot output File Name" header cell and Save Post Processing Setup, write a PPS file. Then open the MAX file without the settings an repeat the process using the Load Post Processing Setup option to load the PPS file. Check that you have the same units for both designs, you can then change the settings as required.
