    Hi Bob,

    I hope you find the code useful.

    Things are slowly returning to a new normal here in Christchurch. The central business district is still cordoned off as many of the buildings are unstable and need to be demolished. My company is fortunate in that we are on the city outskirts in a relatively unaffected area. Some of my colleagues, friends and family have not been so lucky.

    Regards, Dave

    Hm, bad news there! I'm using Orcad PCB 16.2. For some reason the the text blocks of my parts (all currently using block 2 for assembly ref des and block 3 for silkscreen ref des) are assigned seemingly random numbers. Same parts does get same "new numbers" on the same board. But if I start a new board they get a new set... Always block numbers over 5 - so I thought 1-4 might be reserved. If Dave is using 1,2,3, and 17 it can't be the problem. So now I'm just puzzled!!!

     It seems to crucial/obvious to be a program error (?) but I seriously struggle to find out what I'm doing wrong! I anyone has a hit it'll be greatly appreciated ;-D

     Cheers,  Anders
