You may set editor environment variable in the shell profile. ( .cshrc for csh). The text editor useb by cadence may also be set int the '.cdsinit' file or .Xdefaults.

If you use the vpulse cell from analogLib library shipped with cadence (not modified) and get these errors, maybe it is a bug.

I am designing DIGITAL PHASE LOCKED LOOP using cadence.
I have written VERILOG-A code for the Digital Phase Locked Loop. But the actual problem is :--
1. I am opening Verilog-A window from CIW and editing the verilog code. It is giving `include "constants.vams" instead of `include "constants.h".

Are the model files for MC simulation different than for parametric sweep ?
For EG: I want to sweep Beta but in model files it is given a constant value i.e. bf= 250 if i write bf = BETA only then i can sweep it !
So, Can i edit the model files in text editor and name them differently to use them in parametric analysis?

cadence, like other vendor, has their own proprietary format, so you won't be able to use any other tool (e.g. text editor) to view their file (it's in a binary form by the way). However, cadence, like other vendors, also support the open format VCD, which is in a text file.
For your purpose, it's (...)

Spectre is a whiney b!tch and cadence won't do anything
about that. It allows and requires you define a model once
and only once. Evidently tolerance of errors and redefinition
was just too difficult to code up. Strange, since they were
built by looting SPICE and CAD experts from their customers
who had witten much better user interfaces.

cadence use "home" env setting to seach the path of "pcbenv".The default setting of "home" in 2000/xp is "c:\documents and settings\%profile%\",so you need change the setting to such as "Home=C:\",then cadence will use "c:\pcbenv" to save your setting.

Probably depends on what tools you need to communicate
with - netlist output facilities, do you want to be able to
probe simulation results driven from schematic or more
"old school" (text netlists and text waveform select)?
Verification, are you going to do a SPICE:SPICE LVS
or do you need schematic to cough up some other

Simplest is to create a symbol (with no schematic) - Why not copy the us_8ths and then strip it?
Then add what ever features/logos you like. For this symbol you can also add all those nice text labels that you want.
To add your own logo it is sometimes easier to first draw the logo with the layout editor and then copy it into the symbol (...)
