  • PCB file showing extra components which are not present in schematic file.

    Hi, I am new in this Altium World. I have a problem that my PCB file is showing some extra repeated components which are not present in schematic. If I delete them in pcb , those are reappearing after pcb update. Please help me with these.

    Please, could you delete them from your PCB, then go to Schematic: Design -> Update PCB and attach the screenshot from the ECO?

      Deleted from pcb and while updating pcb in schematic, window pop ups with msg "failed to match components using Unique Identifier. Match remaining components using their designator." and those components are reappearing in pcb..

      Did you try to go to your PCB: Project - Component Links - Perform Update?

      Finally...issue resolved with conclusion ...That component was created with Default Designator U? because of which same component was getting placed multiple times.Now I turned that Default Designator as * and now only single component is getting placed with different parts. This is the solution what I came across but correct me if I am wrong....
