Simulation using AD8336, AD736 and AD8551 spice models in Pspice

I have this circuit to be simulated in Pspice. I'm a complete newbie to it. But so far have managed to make the schematic (adding external components, which were not available already in the library).

I have added models for AD8336, AD736 and AD8551 externally (models for which were available on Analaog devices website). Now when I try to run my simulation, I get errors as to the sub circuits used by AD8336 and AD736 are undefined (although I have added the libraries for both the AD8336 and AD8551 to my design in the simulation profile).

Kindly help. I really feel stuck up at this point. I got to make this work anyhow.
Thanks in advance
