    You have to add ref label to footprint before saving it, you can find some documents on internet regarding adding ref des in allegro

    Actually you have to add refdes for that footprint.
    open the footprint(.dra).
    go to layout-labels-refdes and assign refdes in the class and sub class you need it.
    please have a look of the attachment.
    after that save the symbol(.dra) and try.
