There are often situations where data returned from different Information Providers cannot be identified as one and the same, and encompass cannot automatically merge the entities. encompass will therefore display a duplicate icon on the chart and where we suspect the entity is one and the same will indicate a possible match on the label linking the two entities. You can merge the entities using the Merge button in the Details panel or the Chart toolbar option under
In certain circumstances you may want to retain both entities in the Chart and remove the Link with the match label - please refer to the article - how to remove a match link.
