Sheet Symbol with Duplicate Entries

Parent category: Violations Associated with Components

Default report mode:


This violation occurs when a sheet symbol contains two sheet entries possessing the same name.


If compiler errors and warnings are enabled for display on the schematic (enabled on the Schematic - Compiler page of the Preferences dialog) an offending object will display a colored squiggle beneath it. A notification is also displayed in the Messages panel in the following format:

Sheet Symbol with duplicate entries Sheet Entry <Identifier> at <Location1> and <Location2>,


Identifier is used to represent the offending sheet entry. The identifier appears in the format SheetSymbolName-SheetEntryName(SheetEntryIOType).

Location1 is the X,Y coordinates for the first violating sheet entry.

Location2 is the X,Y coordinates for the second violating sheet entry.

Recommendation for Resolution

Change the name of the offending sheet entry object as required, either by editing the name in-situ, or by double-clicking on the offending sheet entry and editing the Name field in the corresponding Sheet Entry dialog.
