    I am having trouble migrating multiple objects with different names and GUIDs into a single updated object with a completely different GUID.

    Migrating a single object works fine, but when I add multiple GUIDs to the migration list it doesn’t want to work.

    FYI – this is in AC16 (I’m trying to update older objects from AC6-AC12 to AC16)

    Also I’ve experienced the same problem in AC18 for multiple objects from different versions with same name but different GUIDs migrating to one object of the same name.

    Is there something I’m missing?

    Hi, please attach sample objects – both the “old” ones and the “new”. There are so many thing that can go wrong in a migration, that I simply can’t help you without the samples.

    So, you can’t upload .GDL files? LOL… Let’s try this again.

    Unfortunately only the standard image and document and zip files can be uploaded, no gsm and lcf from the forum. I’ll check your files soon.

    For the first view: you shouldn’t comment the following lines:
    ! actualGUID = "29BC0A02-02ED-4536-A043-ECE303A3FB31"
    Delete the exclamation mark, as you need to set your migration ID to the ID of your new object. In my quick test file, it solved the problem.

    I tried that before and it did not work. Maybe I’m testing it wrong…

    1. I have placed all the old objects in a file with all the parts loaded.
    2. I then delete the old parts from the Library.
    3. I then reload the Library. And it says that the original parts are “missing”.

    Am I missing something?

    Hmmm. Looks like I have to actually close the file then re-open it for the migration to happen. Thanks for your help.

    I think the easiest way to test forward migration is to have 2 ARCHICADs open at the same time: one with the old libraries and one with the new ones. Then I can simply place objects from the old library, and then copy-paste them to the other ARCHICAD with the newer libparts. If they are replaced during the paste, then forward migration is ok.
    It’s quite fast, there are no problems with library reloading, and you can check visually the 2 different versions.
