Wonderware Inbatch Interface - How to specify the Units for the tags and not affect Module Database

Hi:

We are currently working on the creation of an interface for InBatch in PI Events Frame Interface Manager.  Currently there is a similar interface created for Compressors Units, and this new Interface has similar parameters but for a different group of units named Chroma.

There are a group of tags that has been defined as: 001_[UNIT]_Batch_Active, 001_[UNIT]_Batch_Events, etc...in both interfaces, the old one and in the new one.  There can be multiple Chroma units, that's why we used [UNIT], the same case as in the Compression Units. 

On the SMT under the Module Database I currently have two different modules: one for Compressors and the other for Chroma. Under Compressors I have my two compression units 01, 02.  And right now I need to see under my Chroma module the two Chroma units 01,02.  But this is what I am seeing right now:

 

Compression (I just need the Comp units)
          + Comp01
          + Comp02
          +Chroma01
          +Chroma02
Chromatography (here I need only the Chroma Units)
          + Comp01
          + Comp02
          +Chroma01
          +Chroma02

 

I am wondering if this has to be with how is the interfaces are configured because I am thinking that by using [UNIT] in some way the system will bring any unit regardless on what interface I am.  I need to know if there is any way to tell the system to bring only the unit related to my areas, because I don't see any other options or setting on the interface Manager to make this a bit more specific. The issue is that if I have multiple Units they will appear under each module and that is not what I want.

Please let me know if someone else have the same problem or if you know what to do in this case.

 

Thanks
