What explanation is there for the Inconsistent Classification Flag Overlay to appear in ECTR ?

I have searched through all current documentation that I can find for an explanation for the inconsistent classification flag overlay. The document icon overlay is a red triangle with and exclamation point. The only mention I can find is from pre-ECTR 5.0 documents and there it only describes the flag itself and not the technical details of why it occurs and how it can be resolved.

"The inconsistent classification flag red overlay triangle with an explanation point in the document icon."

Hello Neal,

there is an icon guide in your ECTR installation.

Either go via ECTR->Help->Display Documentation

or you can also find the document within your installation under \documentation\r3\Manuals\en\SAP Implementation Guide Icons_EN.pdf

Within the guide you will find the explanation of this overly icon:

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply.

At the time that I wrote this the latest released version of ECTR Base was with the SAP Implementation Guide: Icons is Document Version: 7.0 - 2017-06-30. The explanation is not present.

After your response I have downloaded and I see the capture of the page you included. However, this still does not give any further explanation of "inconsistent classification"

The only thing I find that seems close to an explanation is in the note under "4.1 Attribute Transfer from the SAP System to an Application." of the Operations Guide but this seems to refer to the dirty flag.

"All CAD parts whose attributes do not match the SAP attributes are inconsistent."
