Changing Feeder ID Formats

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

You can change how your feeder IDs are formatted in the project customization options. See Feeder ID Formats for more information about the different formats and where to set them.

If you change your feeder ID format at the beginning of a new project, you don’t need to do anything else — when you create your one-line diagram, feeder IDs will be generated based upon the selected format.

If you change your feeder ID format during a project, some additional work is required to change the format for existing feeders.

Electrical for AutoCAD

  1. After you have changed the feeder ID format, run the Feeder IDs command.
  2. Press the Delete Multiple button. The Delete Multiple Feeder IDs dialog box will open.
  3. Select all of the feeder IDs in the list and press the OK button.
  4. Press the Exit button to close the dialog box.
  5. Run the Update command.

The feeder IDs on the one-line diagram will be redefined based upon the new feeder ID format.

Electrical RT for Revit

  1. After you have changed the feeder ID format, run the Project Feeder ID Schedule command.
  2. Select all of the feeder IDs in the list and press the Delete button.
  3. Press the OK button to save your changes and close the dialog box.
  4. Run the Calculate Whole Project command.

The feeder IDs on the one-line diagram will be redefined based upon the new feeder ID format.

Troubleshooting

Q: I followed the instructions, but my feeder IDs either didn’t change or changed to something different than the format I set. What happened?

A: This can occur when your project pulls feeder IDs from the master schedule. There are two solutions:

  • In the One-Line Diagram section of the project customization options, find the Transfer feeder IDs from master schedule if possible option. Set this option to No and press the OK button. Then repeat the steps above.
  • Perform the steps above, but run the master Feeder IDs command (Master Feeder ID Schedule for Electrical RT) instead. Then repeat all of the steps above as written.
    • NOTE: Do not delete feeder IDs from the master schedule unless you’re sure they won’t be used for other projects.
