# Not connected pin in Orcad Capture

I have a pot (R8), as you can see, C6 capacitor is connected to its middle terminal, I have trouble implementing this in Orcad as it says that the negative terminal of the capacitor is connected to nowhere, I tried placing a No Connect, it didn't work, then connected it to GND and the error went away.

But is connecting that terminal to GND technically correct or it would distort the result?

• Have you made the symbol yourself? Did you use the same grid as in your schematic? A grid mismatch is usually the reason for not being able to connect a component terminal in the schematic. – eeintech Jan 27 '20 at 14:44
• No, I've taken it from one my assignments. – mahdi Jan 27 '20 at 14:48
• put a 1000 Meg resistor across the output terminals – jsotola Jan 27 '20 at 15:25
• If that pin is your output, then you need to tell Orcad that there is some sort of pad or connector there. – Dave Tweed Jan 27 '20 at 16:50
