When trying to insert a symbol into a project page, the following error message is displayed and the inserted symbol is not intelligent:
"The symbol mismatched between drawing file and the catalog.mdb, to use it the user should rebuild the catalog at first."
A date/time stamp is stored in the XML code for each symbol in the blkSymXML column of the BlkInfo table of catalog.mdb and in the drawing file for each symbol. When something prevents or interrupts updating of the date/time stamp in either location, a mismatch results.
Right-click the name of the catalog containing the symbol in Catalog Manager and select Rebuild. This might not resolve the problem if the cause of initial mismatch is still occurring.
