Hi

 

We have problem with ePDM(ver. 17.5 (B89)). We are using SW 2017 SP5. It seems that one worker can not check in one assembly file. ePDM gives error:"  The filename, which needs to be unique in the file vault, has been used before".

 

1.Database search returns empty.

2. Firstly I checked that deleted files would not hold a place for this name. Deleted items tab in the property tab of the whole database does't have a file with such name to destory.

3. Then I found this forum thread that suggested to give a permission to the user to delete files. (Odd error on file move within the Vault.). When I checked permissions then I found that user doesn't have this permission personally but the group she is in has this permission.

 

 

It seems that I can't solve this problem. How should I proceed?

Best Regards!

Mart

Re: Can't check in the file with unique file name - "The filename has been used before"

it is likely there is a local copy added to the vault with this name already. (i.e. someone saved an assembly with this same name, but has not yet checked it in). I don't remember when the added the ability to allow users to search these files, but definitely the admin can search for them from the server.

If search on the SQL Server is unavailable, it is possible to try something to clarify something by means of Report generator.

ePDM search tool, with admin account, showed that there is only this one assembly file in the private state. And this file is in the same person computer that can't check the file into vault. I can't see any duplicate in the vault.

 

Maybe the duplicate is floating somewhere between the state change and hasn't got accepted so I can't see that. I'll run report generator and see where this gets me.

 

Meanwhile..How to make a query directly from ePDM's SQL Server?

 

Best Regards!

Hi

 

We were able to pinpoint the problem. We had the duplicate file in the project folder but this wasn't the file we were looking for.

I was able to find "duplicate query form" for the report generator and found out what file was creating the problem.

 

Thank you for your time!

Best Regards

Mart
