Description:
How to merge without creating duplicate files if child & parent view has files with same name but different object ID"s?




Answer/Solution:
In 2005 R2 CPC client, merge operation used to result creation of duplicate files if child & parent view have files with same name but different object id"s( i.e after branching if you add files to child & parent view with same name). With default options , merge operation in 2006 CPC client also ends with creation of duplicate files but this can be avoided by selecting "Match files by name" option during 3rd & last step in Merge Wizard which will merge the file in parent view instead of creating duplicate file.
