I'm trying to import a Sage Catalog Database into a QTO model. However, recieve an error message "item with same key already exists"

*TRYING to determine which information QTO reads from the database and in what order. Does it read item and assembly descriptions, phase numbers, item number,etc.?  Hopefully, this will help solve the error, possibly duplicate item/assembly descriptions in the database is causing the error?


Any suggestions will be USEFUL!!!

I'm not sure what the application reads on import and I'm guessing that you cannot change or alter the process in any way. This sort of thing would be unsupported. As a matter of interest, are you on the latest version of Revit? Go here and confirm: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/index?siteID=123112&id=2334435&linkID=9273944
