Do you want to show this already opened document error


I just wanted to throw a quick blog out there for our customers that are using routing. (This issue can happen more than with just routing, but this is where I typically see it most.)  I tend to switch my routing databases and library components around quite frequently, and every once in awhile I will run across an error that states “a document named ’fitting name’ is already opened.  Do you want to show those already opened document?”

There is a perfectly logical explanation for the error.  The error typically comes up when a document with the same name as a document open in the assembly is opened from a different folder.  The fix is quite simple; consolidate your library into one folder or ensure that all of your components are opening from the design library folder and the error should go away.

Hopefully this will help!
