     The only option you may have is that eaglr footprints sometimes come in filename.bxl format. You can get a free / evaluation copy of Ultra LIbrarian that will read bxl fiormat and export it to OrCAD / Allegrro format. The alternative is to get the part datasheet and create the footprint in OrCAD  / Allegro.

    I read from a forum that if you export to protel pcb then it can import to orcad

    How to import it to orcad ????

     

    Btw is look like too difficult to create a footprint to orcad. (A new footprint is created to orcad layout??? )

     Are you using OrCAD Layour or OrCAD PCB Editor ? You can import an old style Protel PCB into OrCAD Layout by File - Import.

    Footprint creation in PCB Editor is straight forward. Here's a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfCM0Ho8IE0&list=TLJwzlgfsMFA7H0UPpKs1ZhqijqItvgriJ
