Message

SmartPlant Error: Multiple objects with the same name.

Severity

High.

Detailed Description

This error indicates that there is retrieved information in which a single name resolves to multiple objects stored in the model.

Possible Cause

A typical cause of this error is a bug in an upstream application. More rarely, there is an unforeseen workflow that the software adapter is not prepared to handle.

Possible Impacts

The most likely impact is that two-dimensional drawings will be incorrectly displayed because multiple objects that represent items in the drawings overlap. The wrong drawing can be displayed. This situation is due to an incorrect correlation between the retrieved design basis object and the model object.

The model object might be correlated to an older duplicate object. There is no way to identify which object is correct, so both duplicate objects must be removed.

What You Should Do

In Project Management, run the Database > Clean Database command. Be sure to make a backup of your databases before running this command.
