Project Status.

Top  Previous  Next

The Project Status gives detailed information about the status of the files in the project. From the Project Status, you can find out if the files are closed, if they have been compiled or if they even exist. To view the Project Status, select the "View|File Status" option from the menu bar.

 

The Project Status dialog box displays a list of all the basic files in the project. After each file name, the program displays status information about the file. There are three items:

 

1. Exists. This item shows if the file can be found in current path. If any of the files do not exist, the Project Manager cannot process or display the data in those files. There are several reasons why the file may not exist. For one thing, the project may be brand new and the new file hasn't been created. If so, you can use by the “Create New File” button or the “File|Create New Survey File” option from the menu bar to create the file. You can also use the Survey Editor to create a new file. Also, the project file may be in the wrong folder. In this case, you should use the Save File As option to save the file in the correct folder.

 

2. Closed. This item shows whether the file has been closed.

 

3. Compiled. This item shows whether the file has been compiled.

 

If any of the files appear to be uncompiled or unclosed, you can compile or close them by hitting the Process And View Cave button.
