A quick look shows that you are missing all the info that is needed in the symbol to make it intelligent:
I recommend using Symbol Builder which will provide you with all the attributes that need to be on a symbol to make it intelligent.
You also need to change the way you name symbols.
ACE uses the following format:
1st Char - H or V for horizontal or vertical insertion.
2 and 3 char - the family code for th esymbol; i.e., CR for relays, MO for motors, SS for selector switches. This is how ACE knows which table to look in in the database for part information.
4 char - 1 for the Parent Symbol and 2 for the Child Symbol
5 char - 1 is a NO contact, 2 is a NC Contact. Used mostly with relay children symbols and switches.
6 char and up - these can be whatever you want to make the symbol distinctive.
Here is a wiki that goes into it in more detail
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the quick reply. I did use symbol builder when I created them. I changed name and file save location though, should I keep ace's default naming and save location. It sounds like that would help. I am just trying to create a basic line diagram, my blocks do not need to be intelligent(except for wire connectin points). Should I just attach them as xrefs and connect the wires to a spot on the box, not an actual "terminal". I have a feeling I am making this much more complicated than it needs to be. Thank you again
