  1. Set the active plant as desired via Drawing Manager.

  2. On the Start menu, select Intergraph Smart P&ID Support Utilities > Configure Item Tag Utility to start the utility.

    The following form will be displayed once the utility has initialized:

    For additional information about the fields in this form, see Configure Item Tag Dialog Box.

  3. Select the Item Type, for example PipeRun.

  4. Set the Field Number to reflect the number of properties that will be displayed in the item tag (that is, a value between 2 and 12).

  5. Select properties to be displayed from the lists.

    • The order of the properties in the list is the order in which they will appear in the item tag.

    • The TagSequenceNo property must always be used in the item tag. If you are configuring the item tag for item type PipingComp, you must add TagSequenceNo as an attribute of this item type in Data Dictionary Manager.

  6. Enter the separator to be placed between the selected properties. The separator can be selected from the list or entered manually.

  7. Enter a Fixed length string value for desired properties.

  8. Enter the Padding character to be used for the Fixed length string fields. If the value for the string is less than the fixed length, this padding character will be used in each space to the left or right of the entered values for the desired property, depending on the alignment specified in next step.

  9. Choose Alignment for the Fixed length string field.

  10. If you have selected a property that already has a validation program associated with it in Data Dictionary Manager, copy that ProgID from the Data Dictionary Manager field to the ProgID field in the Configure Item Tag Format Utility. (In the example below, NominalDiameter is being used in the Item Tag for pipe runs. This field has a ProgID of ValidateNomDiam.ForeignCalc in Data Dictionary Manager. It has been copied to the utility’s ProgID field. The Item Tag function will then call this ValidateNomDiam.ForeignCalc when it runs.)

  11. Click OK to save the format of the active Item Type.

    The following confirmation will be displayed. Click OK to continue.

  12. Repeat steps 3 - 11 to configure each Item Type’s Item Tag.

  13. Click Exit to dismiss the utility form.

  14. Open Data Dictionary Manager (user must have access rights defined by Smart Engineering Manager) to complete the remaining steps of the process.

  15. Under Database Tables, select the Item Type Pipe Run.

  16. Highlight the NominalDiameter property and then right-click and select properties to open the Modify Property window.

  17. Add the ProgID ItemTag.ItemTagFunc value to the Validation ID property.

    If a property included in an item tag’s definition is already associated with a validation program in Data Dictionary Manager, the existing value of that property's Validation ID must be copied to the Configure Item Tag Utility's ProgID field in order to be triggered, in addition to entering the value ItemTag.ItemTagFunc in the Validation ID field. For example, the existing Validation ID for the Nominal Diameter property of a pipe run is ValidateNomDiam.ForeignCalc.

  18. Click OK button to dismiss the Modify Property window.

  19. Repeat steps 16, 17, and 18 for each property included in the definition of the Pipe Run’s item tag.

  20. Repeat steps 15, 16, 17, and 18 for each set of Item Type properties.

  21. Click Save and exit Data Dictionary Manager.
