# LTspice XVII Error Handling

I got a model from net and want to open it, but I encounter with this error. Can somebody there help?

• Perhaps you might show us the model you got? – jonk Apr 17 at 5:24
• That's not a model, it's a footprint info file, used for routing & co. If you're looking for an .asc file, that's not the same as ASCII. – a concerned citizen Apr 17 at 6:38
• "A model" need more info. – Voltage Spike Apr 19 at 22:16
