Menta modifications are not saved into the Vista Database.

Issue

When you make a change to the Menta file and save that file back into Vista the changes are not available in Vista.

An alarm appears stating  ( "Object does already exist " when expanding file in database)

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

Vista 5.1.7

Cause

In some earlier versions of Vista, illegal characters were allowed to be entered in the Menta program specification name.

Here is a link to describing more on that problem.

Resolution

Rename the Menta program specification name.  No more than 12 character and no spaces or illegal characters. Refer to the following article for illegal characters which can not be used.

Then generate the OP tree for the Menta application and save into the Vista database.
