    The attached file, LM317.zip, contains:

    LM317.sub - place in ...\SwitcherCad\lib\sub
    LM317.sym - place in ...\SwitcherCad\lib\sym\PowerProducts
    That way it will show up in the list with Linear Technology's power products.

    Since I've added LM317.sub in the symbol itself, you don't have to use the .INCLUDE LM317.sub SPICE directive.

    Hi all,
    FYI: There is an excellent forum for LTSPICE users on yahoo. Just go to yahoo and search the forums for LTSPICE. It's run and often answered by one of the authors of LTSPICE and there are lots of problems asked and answered. It's been there for at least about 2 years that I know of, if not longer and therefore, has a very long list of answered questions and problems. And of course, it's free to join and open to anyone interested.
    Regards,
    Kamran Kazem

    i can vouch for this forum as well - just this week i needed to add the same part to my LTSpice - i joined the group and had the .zip file in a matter of minutes.

    A word of thanks to SgtWookie from me too. Worked the first time and the readings make sense. Saved!
