What to do when a drop down listing does not have a specific selection that is normally there?
If specific information was not listed on a drop down listing that would otherwise normally be available means that there may be no library data for that setting per that pipe size. See AutoPIPE help to confirm.
Pipe size = 22 inch dia.
Type of valve available was only Ball valve
From the Valve dialog select "Help" button,
> Valve Type hyperlink,
> View Standard Valves in Library hyperlink
> ANSI/ASME Library
> Standard Ball Valve (Side entry)
Note, 22 inch valve library information was available for a ball valve.
However, NO 22 inch valve library information was available for a Gate valve. Thus Gate valve was not an available selection on the valve drop down listing image above.
Use one of the following options:
Select NS (Non-Standard) from the drop down listing, and enter the relevant dialog values as needed
Manually update the Component Library to include new library values based on each pipe size of interest.
