Changing the Data File or .PRM file in a Script uploaded to PC

For changing the data file we have to delete the script from PC Project and upload a new one to the project. Did anyone faced this issue of not able to change the parameter file directly by downloading the script to Vugen changing the parameter and uploading back to PC.

We are using PC 9.5.

Instead of using parameter files look into using the Virtual Table Server (VTS). You can find the download of this small database program in the self server knowledge base. Using the VTS to feed your parameters allows you to change your data any time, even on the fly.

Re: Changing the Data File or .PRM file in a Script uploaded to PC

If I understand your question directly, you want to be able to change a file which resides with a script. That's easy enough - the projects are stored in numbered folders underneath LRFS on the server designated as the database server. There's nothing really magical about LRFS and its contents. Just know which numbered folder belongs to the project you're interested in and drill down to where the file is you want to replace and replace it.

Otherwise, Alan's suggested about VTS is recommended since it's a much better way of managing the script's interaction with the data - with the added benefit of keeping the memory footprint smaller since you don't have to lug the data around with each user.

Re: Changing the Data File or .PRM file in a Script uploaded to PC

Our LRFS is on NAS and only IUSR_METRO will have full access to that.I don't think changing the script files directly in LRFS is best practice for Enterprise level tool.

yes we can look into VTS option but with the number of scripts we have it is not going to happen soon.

All i wanted to do is

1) Open the Script uploaded to PC in Vugen

2) Change the Data File and Reupload(Overwrite) the Script in PC.

issue is it is not taking the changes.

thanks for response
