Valve Tag Format

I'm trying to set up a Valve Tag Format so that the valve will aquire the line size (Top) and the users will be able to manualy enter a valve code (Bottom). I have no issue aquiring the line size but I am struggling with the valve code. I want to be able to use the same valve code several times because obviously the same type/size/spec of a valve will be used hundreds of times in a project...problem is I keep getting the duplicate valve code error. I can't find the proper Tag Format to accomplish this. Please help:smileyhappy:

Tags as setup to contain unique values for items in the database records. You can use the default, "Valve Code" property (or make a new selection list for it) to enter/select codes that can be used over and over again.
