When attempting to rename a page using Project Manager, the following message is displayed:
AlertFile has the same name has existed or access denied, can not rename.
When attempting to create a new page using Project Manager, the following message is displayed:
AlertUnable to create new page. Another page with this same file name may already exist.
These messages can occur when the new or renamed page would have the same file name as an existing file in the project folder.
Click Edit on Options > Project Options > Standards > General to view the Drawing Naming Convention and see what parameters are used to create file names of pages. The default project options delivered with the software include a file naming convention of [Drawing Set]-[Page Number]. In that case, a different drawing set or page name could be used when renaming or creating the page to ensure a unique file name.
Click Edit on Options > Project Options > Standards > General to view the Drawing Naming Convention and change what parameters are used to create file names of pages. Perhaps a parameter could be added to the naming convention to ensure a unique file name.
If the conflicting file cannot be seen in ProjectWise Explorer, it may still exist but not be visible to the user due to security/permission settings on the document or folder. For example, if users are added to the Security for a document, this typically excludes users not added, which results in the file not being listed in ProjectWise Explorer for excluded users. A test for this would be to try creating a file with the conflicting name using ProjectWise Explorer. If the resulting file has a "(1)" appended to the file name, this is an indication that the conflicting file exists. Trying to rename a file to the conflicting file name using Project Wise Explorer results in the following message:
Error InformationLast Error [ 58057 ]Error modifying documentDocument name is already used in this folder. Use a different name and try again.
Error - page already exists
