I am doing an upgrade of custom events and fields in Applications 10. I have two instances of Apps 10: In one instance I am adding all the custom events and custom fields to configuration packages. I am then importing those package in another instance of Apps10. The custom events in the packages already exist in the Apps10 instance I am importing them to. However when I import them it tells me that the custom event already exists (which is true) and in the case of the custom fields it does not overwrite the the existing field, it creates a new one with “_2” appended to the name.
Configuration Package does not overwrite

According to this link I cannot overwrite existing objects:
“There is no support for delivering a package that will remove custom objects that has been created by previous versions of the package and now are considered obsolete”
Actually I am incorrect; a custom field or event action will overwrite the same custom event or field when imported to an IFS instance from a configuration package if when you export the configuration package you enter a version number and a configuration package with the same version name does not exist on the target instance.
However for custom events it will not overwrite it, it says it is already present.
