Delete Extra Devices from Database

The Delete Extra Devices From Database command is used to delete devices from the database that are on drawings that no longer exist in the project.

Normally, you use the AutoCAD ERASE command to erase devices. They will be erased from the drawing and database.

If a drawing is deleted before all of the devices are erased, the records still exist in the database. You cannot erase the device from the drawing because it no longer exists. Using this command, these devices can be deleted from the database.

To delete any devices that exist in the database that either do not have an associated drawing or are on a drawing that no longer exists, go to

Ribbon: DM HVAC->Utilities-> dm_dm-util ->Delete Extra Devices From Database

Pulldown Menu: DM HVAC->Utilities->Delete Extra Devices From Database

The drawing that each device is on will be compared with the list of drawings in the project. If the drawing in the database does not exist, the Delete devices? dialog box will appear.
