Re-Tag Individual Components - AutoCAD Electrical

An interesting support call came in where the customer wanted to only retag a specific type of component (e.g. circuit breakers) without retagging all of the components within the project.


The   Retag Components option doesn’t give you the ability to filter on a specific type of component such as circuit breakers


However you can Import/Export Data ribbon > Export to spreadsheet > Components



Open the resulting Excel document and sort by TAGNAME.



You can then change the tags quite easily using Excel’s automated increase/decrease numbering system

Save the excel spreadsheet and then select

Select the command Import from Spreadsheet



Obviously if you are unfamiliar with these options it is recommended to make a copy of the project prior to trying this out.
