Hi all, 

I have created the symbol file from the verilog code in Quartus. Then i have added verilog file and bsf file into Quartus --> library. Then i have created new project for adding my block design file and started synthesis. Its throwing an error 

 

"Error (12006): Node instance "inst" instantiates undefined entity "count" 

Error: Quartus II 64-Bit Analysis & Synthesis was unsuccessful. 1 error, 0 warnings 

 

Is there anyone having idea about this error. Please look over the attachment and guide me.

you need to add the source file to the project file list, not just the library. The library gives quartus search paths to find things like header files or verilog `includes.
