Does anyone recall how to flush out a datum name that was given to an axis in a hole that was deleted from a feature that included several holes. When we try to give another axis that same datum name we get the error message "Name Already Exists".

I got couple of responses on this, both suggesting to use the binoculars to search for the axis. Problem is, the axis is gone, so searching finds nothing. Turns out there's an SPR (1134871) for this problem (reported in Wildfire but without a resolved release yet). The recommendation I got was to not use a feature axis (for GTOL datums in our case) but create an axis just for that purpose so if it needs to be redefined or deleted the name will be re-usable.
