Verify Linkages Dialog

Used to check elements with linkages for corresponding rows in the database. Linkages without corresponding rows are orphan linkages.

You can open this dialog from the following:

  • Ribbon: Drawing > Attach > Database > Open Verify Linkage tool
  • Toolbox: Database
  • Applications Dialog: Select DBCHECK in the Available Applications list box, and click the Load button.

The dialog has two main display areas. The first shows all the linkage types that were found in the design file. In this area, you select the linkage types you want to manipulate. The second area displays information about each linkage.

The linkage database type, entity number, MSLINK and level of an element can all be changed without being connected to the database. To verify orphan linkages, a database connection is required.

This dialog can process multiple linkages or an entire design file. Information updated dynamically as changes are written to the design file

Maximum of 499,999 records can be loaded.
