    Hey you guys. Im redoing this one problem in the textbook (Fundamentls of electric circuits 4th edition;example 12.11,chap.12.9) and this is my first time using pspice so im not sure if im doing this right. It says to simulate by selecting Analysis/Simulate and I should get an output file but i dont see that "Analysis option" so I figured i clicked "run" and i got some errors. I have the imaged attach so you can see the circuit and the errors im getting.
    so Could someone help me out on this? Thank you very much.

    That is very strange, because it's complaining about GND as being floating; by it's very definition it should be the 0v reference point.

    It looks like you're using an old version of OrCAD and are using something like GND/CAPSYM. Use something like 0/CAPSYM for it to correctly label the ground node as the reference node. Correct symbols will have a '0' written next to them.
