    Non-Unique files : How to generate auto-reference

    Mandar Parkhi

      I have enabled unique file setting for my valut ('Do not allow duplicate file names in this vault'). I am trying to check-in an assembly which contains some files with unique names and some files which are non-unique (already existing in the vault). When I check-in the folder, only the unique files are checked-in. Duplicate files are not checked-in.


      Is there a setting / option to automatically refer the existing files in vault in place of the new duplicate files ?

          In the folder you can delete the duplicate files that won't check-in. Then use the Update References tool using the "Find Files" option.

              Hi Michael, Thanks a lot for your answer. But I need some more details.


              I created an assembly with 6 parts and checked into the vault.


              Then I checkout the assembly, copied the 7 files to new folder, then in the copied folder, modified two part names, modified assly name, modified assly references to two modofied parts.


              Then I pasted the folder in vault. Then checked in the folder. Only the assly and two parts got checked in. Then I deleted the other 4 parts which could not be checked-in.


              Then I selected the assembly in vault. clicked Tools --> Update references.


              But it showed only two references. SO THE REFERENCES OF THE FOUR DELETED FILES WERE ALSO DELETED.


              Pl. suggest how to update references.


              Warm Regards,
