am getting an error when assigning a tag to a component. the tag I am using is
unique, but I get the following error: "Another asset in the project has the
same tag which has not been saved. Cannot merge with that tag. Please enter a
unique tag" Can anyone explain what is going on in this situation? Thanks,
I'm having the same issue, trying to place a butterfly valve and I'm having the "Please enter a unique number" error come up even after auditing the drawing and running a validation.
If the Audit doesn't work we found the error to be within the ProcessPower.dcf file. I used a free program called sqlitebrowser to open the SQL Database. I went to the Browse Data tab and viewed the PnPTagRegistry Table. In here I searched for the tag that I was trying to rename to (which PID was saying wasn't unique) and deleted that record. When I reopened the PID program and opened the drawing and changed tag number it was fine.
I would urge caution doing this. Make sure no-one is in the database and double check that Audit doesn't fix the issue. Also would back it up before editing. I think our issue happened when the program fatal errored while the user was mirroring the existing item. This I think caused the corruption in the DB.
Hope this helps
I audited both the drawing and the entire project. I believe my issue is also the result of a fatal error crash. The audit is not fixing the problem and I am unable to download the sqlite or whatever it was.
