Using the PCB123 wizard is easy. But how do I format the Orcad netlist? What orcad property will correlate to the PCB123 part? What orcad property will correlate to the PCB123 footprint? The foot print selection is based on the part property "PCB footprint" in Orcad Capture. If the PCB footprint is found (exact match) in the library, that part is just added to the layout automatically, and will not appear in the selector. If the PCB footprint is not found, the part selector uses the PCB foot print as the "search string". Orcad setup: Select the project. Tools/create netlist/Other/tango.dll seems to work OK. Netlist output path: C:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/Pcb123/designs (default import path for PCB123) The netlist will have two parts. The first part will be a listing of components, separated by brackets  . The second part will have the netlist information, separated by parentheses ().
