Multilayer Vias

Hey, it's me again with another multilayer library question.  I need to put a via to the upper conductor (ground plane) of a multilayer board.  However, I don't want to connect to ground, I am just connecting to a chip resistor.

The problem is that schematic won't let me simulate with a via pad on the ground plane.  I can only use via clearance on that layer.  Is there any way around this?  When I try to simulate with the resistor connected to a clearance component, it is like there is no connection at all.

Thanks,
Dan
