changing a phrase's phrase group

Hi all,

I am trying to change a list of phrases Phrase group, and i am trying to do this by uploading the phrase DAT file, which reflects the new PHRGRP. The new PHRGRP exists in the phrase library.

However, after the upload, the phrase still belongs to its old phrase group.

Does the phrase loading program not update the PHRGRP?

    Hi Scott,

    I don't think that can be done at all. Once a phrase is assigned to a phrase group you cannot change it anymore. It's not necessary anyway, a phrase can be used anywhere, regardless which group it is assigned to.

      Hi Ralph - i think you are referring to the fact that you cannot change the phrase group via the user interface in CG12. I agree that it cannot be done there.

      I was using a DAT file import though, and I found below that it can be done that way. (i just had a mistake in my phrase library name which is why it did not work at first)

    Hello Scott,

    Just calrify me on one thing......

    Ex: you have Phrase grp 02.00 and if you want that to phrase group 03.00 just export that sam e phrases in dat file & update/edit PHRGRP to 03.00 in dat file it will work.

    Then import the same file you will get all phrases in 03.00 section.

    Hey Scott,

    It will work for sure, you check the table ESTPH in that PHRGRP field Check the same group is there are not if change in dat file definitely it will update into cg12 with new group.

    Once check in level.

    and it is not possible to delete the phrase because it was already in used list so you have to change the phrases in cg02 with new group of phrases then delete the old phrases.
