The Generated Sequence File Settings tab contains the following options:
Generated Sequence File Path Settings—Contains the following options for specifying the file path of the sequence file the ATML TD translator generates:
Specify Fixed File Path—The complete path where you want to save the sequence file.
Generate File Path—Generates a file path for the sequence file using the following parameters:
Base Directory—The base directory for generating the sequence file path. You can select from the following options:
The <TestStand Temp> directory, which maps to %temp%\TestStand
The <TestStand Public> directory
The same directory as the ATML TD instance document
Path Relative to Base Directory (Optional)—The relative path to append to the specified base directory for generating the sequence file path. Leave the relative path empty to use the directory the Base Directory option specifies. You must use the backslash character (\) to separate paths.
Add Date and Time to File Name—Enable this option to append a date-time string to the target sequence filename to make the sequence filename unique for each translation. You can select time first, date first, time only, or date only from the ring control.
The translator uses the same filename as the source TD instance document for the new translated sequence file. If a sequence file with the same filename and file path already exists but the source TD instance document has changed since you previously translated it, the translator creates a new sequence file. If a sequence file with the same filename and file path already exists and the source TD instance document has not changed since you previously translated it, the translator does not translate the source TD instance document but opens the existing sequence file instead.
