Creating Project Files

When creating a new project file via the Project Editor, you may perform the following steps:

  • Specify general settings — General settings specify an author for the project file, its name and provide a description of it.

  • Specify a model setting — When you specify a model setting, you assign a model to the project, and specify the desired verification settings, if any.

  • Specify input settings — Input settings specify the input file type (i.e., text or database), the input file(s) you want to assign to the project, how multiple input files should be grouped, etc.

  • Specify export settings — When you specify project export settings, you specify an export (or exports) of export files and specify any distribution actions you want to apply to them.

  • Specify prerequisite settings — When you specify prerequisite settings, you add a file prerequisite or a command line prerequisite to the project. Any prerequisites you add must first be met if the associated process is to run.

  • Specify script settings — Script settings allow you to, among other things, specify pre-export and post-export scripts to modify the input and export files.

NOTE: Depending on your needs, not all of these steps may have to be performed. Specifying general and model settings is enough to create a project.
