KB: Duplicate Net Names error on Multi-Channel buses

Created: March 25, 2021 | Updated: August 28, 2023

[Error] TopSheet.SchDoc Compiler Duplicate Net Names Bus Slice - I am receiving this error on the buses from my multi-channel sheet, and my buses do not look like they are properly connecting in the netlist. The buses look to be properly formed. How do I fix this Duplicate Net Name on Multichannel design error?

Starting in Version: 18.0
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

The multi-channel feature is appending information to your bus name, which is not following the proper naming convention. Changing the Multi-Channel naming scheme to $RoomName_$Component allows the proper naming convention to be retained for buses as these net names are formed.

Under Project ► Project Options ► Multi- channel Tab under the Component Naming - Change the Designator Format to $RoomName_$Component and then check the connections again.
