We have a problem with AutoCad PID 2010. The acquisition tag, if I update the tag, for example the pump seats on line 002 and I change that to 010 the tag attached to the object does not update. We have to manually update them as you see in the screenshots i am attaching jpeg for you to see.
I'd like to help. Can you give me some more detailed information? From the images, it looks like what you have is:
1) A user defined acquisition property named "Location-OwnerTag"
* At what class is this property defined? E.g. "Engineering Items" or "Instruments" or "Hand Valves"?
* From what class does it acquire, and what property does it acquire? (What is its acquisition rule?)
2) You have an annotation style based on the "Oval Tag Style" which shows the value of "Location-Owner Tag" in the drawing pane.
Is this correct so far?
Now, if I understand the problem; when the "Location-OwnerTag" property changes in the Display Manager due to acquisition of a changed value, the annotation in the drawing does not immediately update.
Is that a correct description of the problem?
(The acquisition is working correctly -- this part is NOT a problem, right?)
Let me know if I've got the scenario right or wrong, and I'll see what I can figure out for you.
Thank you for your reply. I can send you the files to your mail if you would like to see the problem.
You got the problem right,every first instrument in the loop or Control valve read their location that is Pipeline No.If I change a Pipeline tag and check either location of Instrument or Control valve, placed on that line, is updated.
It is not changed automatically even during Audit process. The only way to update the field is switching to manual mode and then back to acquired.
I think I've got a pretty clear picture now and will try to get an answer for you before the week is out.
If i need your files, I'll ping you back.
Ok, I think it *will* be helpful if you can send your project to mey email. :-) I tried for a bit and wasn't able to recreate the annotation failure-to-update you described, but I most likely have not set things up exactly the same way.
Awaiting your project, and any additional details which may help me to reproduce. For example, which specific values are you changing, by what means (change in Data Manager, or in Assign Tag Dialog, or some other way?) and which annotations specifically are not updating.
In the meantime; as a workaround, the "Synchronize PID Symbols and Annotations" button in the Data Manager will refresh all the annotations in the current drawing at once.
Sorry, here's my email address: lynn[dot]levy[at]autodesk[dot]com
I thought you'd be able to seem my email address in my profile, but our admin just mentioned that isn't the case. Sorry 'bout that!
Thank you for your help.

The problem is that we got no answer from support team,probably our fault as well because it is hard to explain the problem.
The files are big above 7 MB I will try to send it to you also.In the mean time you can look at the pics attached where you clearly see the problem, The location -owner tag does not update although it is configured to acquire mod from pipe tag. if I switch to overide and back to acquisition it updates.
I'm afraid I'm not quite understanding the issue from the images. Unfortunately the tooltip that shows the acquisition source is cut off in the images.
When I read your most recent post, though, it sounded like maybe a different problem than what I thought I had understood before.
It sounds like you are saying that the property is not acquiring correctly in the Data Manager until you switch the property to override, and then switch back.
If that's correct, then the annotation issue is just a side effect of that. The annotation will show the value that is actually in the Data Manager, so until the switch occurs in the Data Manager, its expected that the annotation would also show the prior value.
So... if the acquisition problem is what's vexing you, then that's what we need to solve.
Do you have an acquisition chains involved here? (A acquires from B, which acquires from C). Are you using an acquisition property as a subpart of one of the tag formats? I'm still trying to understand the full issue.
Were you able to send the files to me? I did not see them in my inbox this morning. I think that will be the best way for me to diagnose.
(Sorry for the delayed reply; I was out on Friday.)
I have the same problem. I have a nozzle which has a property that acquire tag value of the connected tank. When i assign a new tag to the tank, the nozzle doesn't reflect the changes. The only way do update is as mention in the reply above, which is setting it to Override and set back to Acquire.
I have spent many hours on this issue with Lynn and Dag from Autodesk.
The problem happens if you play with the aquisition rules. Check the aquisition on an new project and
see if it happens.I suggest you open a case at Autodesk in this matter and ask for Dag Austrheim directly. This kind of problems are above the regular guys from support team.
