Incorrect additional .sdc file causing compilation errors

Hi

I'm modifying an existing project call vjuartcomm, and I have added the .sdc file called vjuartcomm however upon compilation I'm getting the error "Critical Warning (332012): Synopsys Design Constraints File file not found: 'vjatguart.sdc'..." The thing is I believe the 'vjatguart.sdc' is to be an incorrect file, yet I'm unable to trace the source of this problem so that I may update this. I have gone through the settings and in everything I only see the .sdc file I created and all I know is that I get this error from the fitter. I tried running the fitter and timing analysis separately and I got no error, but upon full compilation this error came about. Any suggestions on how I can trace the source of origin for this error. Thanks!!

Hi AAjit2!

 

If you attach the the project (qar for example) it would be much easier for the community to help you.

If the project says vjatguart.sdc, a file by that name must be referenced somewhere in your project or your SDC constraints. Are you saying that in the Timing Analyzer settings, the only file referenced is vjuartcomm.sdc?

 

Try cleaning the project from the Project menu and recompiling.

Yes this is correct. So previously I was getting error in Timing Analyzer as well as Fitter. But when I changed the file in Timing Analyzer that error went away but the fitter error was persisting. Cleaning worked for me to remove the error from fitter, thank you!
