Default How to Sweep Resistor Value in Orcad

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to do a sweep with a resistor?

I've got the parametric sweep box checked, with Model type selected as RES. I'm unsure of what the difference between Model name and Parameter name is.

Parameter name should be the resistor #, like R1?

Default param

You must first place an instance of the "Param" tool (from the Special library in the Pspice library collection) on your schematic . Check out the use of param in the Pspice users manual.
