The Change Room Type for a Room Number utility cannot be used to change the room type of a room number that is part of a component room. If you attempt to do so, you will receive a warning message.
To change the room type of a physical room that is part of a component room you will need to delete the component room, change the physical room's room type, then rebuild the component room under a new Component Room room type.
For example, assume room 101 (room type DLX) and room 102 (room type SUPD) comprise a component room, room 1012 (room type SUI). You wish to change room 101 from a DLX room type to a TOWER room type. First, delete component room 1012. Create a new Component Room room type, SUI2, which includes a TOWER room and a SUPD room. Next, change the room type of room 101 to TOWER. Finally, rebuild component room 1012 as a SUI2 room by adding room 101 (TOWER room type) and room 102 (SUPD room type).
