Please note these modifications will only effect valves that will be placed after this customization in a "NEW" project meaning the no Valve Tags in the database. The reason is that the function that is being used below will search for the Maximum Value by default and then increment by that number. In order for this to work the first valve to be placed in the project drawings will be numbered with the first desired value.
For example, if the desired default tagging is for the Hand Valves to start with 5000 then the first tag created should be example as FE-5000. The next valve to be placed will automatically increment from 5000 to 5001 and so own. How is this accomplished? Refer to the steps below:
Once this is set the user will have to place the first valve and set the number to 1500. After this is done every valve placed after this will automatically increment to the highest number – so Valve 1 = 5000, Valve 2 when placed will be 5001 and so on.
