hi,

I am using Altium Designer Summer 2009 for PCB Designing.

I am having a set of Gerber files and want to create a PCB Document file from this gerber data.

Can any one tell me any simple procedure to do this?

hehe
the whole idea behind gerber is that you cannot trace back the component name and pcb file
it is a manufacturing file containing nothing but captions (pictures) of the PCB layers . so you can view the gerber file , use it , duplicate it , but no modification or altering can be made , understand the point buddy ?? It is used to prevent u from reverse engineering and stealing somebody else's design , SO YOU CANNOT USE ALTIUM OR ANY SOFTWARE TO GET PCB FROM GERBER

HOPE that helps
bye
