Thank you Samson,

Exactly the problem.  I'm using XML format so I'll change the names in
my ETL tool before including.

Cheers Andy

Usually instances included from multiple projects do not get merged. I
know of only one way that can happen: Some instances in Project 1 and
Projects 2 have the same instance names. If that's the case, you can add
the :NAME slot, in Project 1 and Project 2, to the classes that have
instances with shared instance names and rename them. (Alternatively,
open the .pins files and edit the instance names directly.)
