Retag Components Electrical 2009

96 Views, 1 Replies

In a Drawing with a PLC Output Card I have a CB and a SOL, the attributes for my Component are
%F%X-%N

When I use the "Project-Wide Update or Retag" option and check the Component Retag box it names the component SOL-12, where "12" is the Line Number.

On the same Drawing if I use the menu, Components-Component Tagging-Retag Components, it changes the name of the Solenoid to
SOL-O:5/3

The address for the CB on both cases is CB-O:5/3

The Component properties are the same for my Project and my Drawing and I have the "Search for PLC I/O address on insert" box checked

How can I make that the Project Wide Retag option leave the name of the Solenoid with the PLC address instead of the line number?

I tried this on ACAD Electrical 2008 and 2009 and I got the same results.

Thanks,
Carlos

I wasn't able to reproduce this for AcadE 2009. Can
you post a sample project and drawing to try this on? Or you can email directly
to me at
