How to move a file in a project?

Hi,

 

I'm rather new to ISE and trying to understand how it works!

 

I prepared a project with several files.

I have a "top" module, and several other modules "under"  this top.

 

I created another module (schematic), but failed to place it  "under" the top module. So now this new module is, in the "design" window, at the same level as top, but I do not succed to move it and place it under top.

This means that when I wish to use it as a symbol in the schematic editor, this module does not appear in the list, as it is not "under" the top.

 

I tried to remove it and to recall it  (add new source), but it does not come under the top.

 

I hope I've been clear enough!

 

Thanks for help.

 

Gerard.

Hello @f6eeq,

 

You need to instantiate of the schematic file (sub module) in the top module file for which you can use the Instantiation Template of the schematic file.

Click on the schematic file (.sch)  in ISE. In Design utilities, Select View HDL instantiation Template.
