Requires: DSC Module

Right-click a LabVIEW project library and select Properties from the shortcut menu to display the Project Library Properties dialog box. On the DSC Settings: Database page, if you specify a Database path that is the same as that of an existing database, this dialog box appears when you click the OK button.

Use this dialog box to specify how to handle the path conflict.

  • Current database configuration—Displays the database name and path you specified for the project library.
  • Existing database—Displays the name and path of the conflicting database.
  • What do you want to do?—Specifies the action to take to resolve the path conflict. You can select from the following options:
    • Use existing database for this project library—LabVIEW logs historical data or events to the Existing database. The current database name for historical data or event logging will change to the Existing database name. LabVIEW does not create a new database.
    • Rename existing database using current project library configuration—LabVIEW renames the Existing database using the current database name for historical data or event logging. LabVIEW logs historical data or events to the renamed Existing database. LabVIEW does not create a new database.
    • Change current project library configuration (logging path)—Enter a different, unique path for the new database to eliminate the path conflict with the Existing database. LabVIEW uses this new database path for historical data or event logging for the project library.
    • Ignore conflicting database (warning may cause alarm logging to fail)—LabVIEW ignores the path conflict, which may cause alarm logging to fail.

The following configuration shows an example of a database path conflict.

Current database configuration:

Database name: process1_data

Database path: C:\process1\data

Existing database on computer:

Database name: tank_measurement

Database path: C:\process1\data
