Troubleshooting: Duplicate Cause Number Error Message

If there is a duplicate cause number on another litigation record, you will receive an error message stating that the information cannot be updated because the cause number has already been entered.

If you receive this message, and if the litigation record you are working in no longer has any property IDs attached to it on the Properties tab, you can add the suffix -2 at the end of the cause number to assist you in identifying duplicate cause numbers.
