Pipeline Tagging Issue

Hello everyone. My first post, on my first AutoCAD P&ID month.

Im having a bit of a problem with pipeline tagging, besides my English.

Trying to tag lines on the same drawing to have the same line number, but different line service. That is the tagging principle at my companies P&IDs. When I do, I get this "must be unique" message. Is there any way to override or fix this, as I don't want to make line groups with different service segments and far apart at the drawing. Can I make separate line tagging strings for each service in my drawing, starting from the same number for each service?

For example: process line: 6"-EA01-P-102.0 and blow down line: 2"-DA09-BD-102.0

Ty, and sorry for my English!

Could I maybe create the new pipeline class definition, like utility pipeline, and if I do, and if I use it at the same drawing, could it be tagged separately from the process pipelines?
