Associating Objects in File Folders

Stat can read a folder and add all the file objects it contains to a CSR. This is done with the Read File Wizard.

Click Next>.
Click the Browse button. Then locate the folder containing the file objects you want to associate with the CSR and click OK.
Click Next>.

Stat adds the file objects to your CSR and associates each file with a file type, as determined by that file’s extension. For example, if you select files with the .sql extension, Stat will associate these files with the file type defined by your system administrator with the .sql extension. If more than one file type has been defined with the same extension, Stat prompts you to select which file type you want.

This final step may take some time, depending on the number of objects being added. A status bar advises you of Stat’s progress. Before the status bar reaches 100% you can interrupt the process by pressing the <Enter> key.

Associating Objects from Other CSRs

You can use the Read CSR Wizard to add objects to your CSR that are associated with another CSR.


Creating File Objects

With proper security rights, you can create a new file object, add it to a CSR, and move it to the assigned developer’s working directory. When you create a file object, you can either use a file template, or you can base it on an existing object.

In Stat, file templates are associated with particular file types. They help standardize development by defining in a reusable format the basic characteristics and structure of new file objects. This way, when you need to create a file object of a particular type, you can use an associated template as a starting point. This helps enforce adherence to development standards and saves time.

(Optional) In the Assigned To field, select a different developer.
(Optional) In the File Type field, select a different file type.
If basing the new file object on an existing object, click the Browse button in the Existing Object field. Then in the Select File dialog box, locate and select the file object you want to use.
In the New Object Name field, enter a name for the new object. Then click Create.
Click Yes for each instance of the object that you want to add to the CSR. Click No for each instance of the object that you do not want to add.

Stat adds each instance of the new object that you selected to the CSR. At this point, the file object exists only in the working directory of the assigned developer but is not yet archived. For more information, see Creating Archive Sets (Generic Applications) .

Editing File Objects

If you want to edit a file object associated with a CSR, you can open it directly from Stat with whichever program your operating system uses to open files of that type. When selecting a file object to edit, remember that you can choose from different versions of the same object. These include the versions that exist in users’ working directories as well as all the source file locations defined for any of the environments on the migration path of the CSR. However, because source file locations do not include drive information, Stat cannot open a file object from the same location in which it resides for a selected environment. Instead, Stat copies the file to the file download directory. For Windows 7/8 it's C:\Program Data\Quest Software\Stat\temp.

It is important to remember that when you edit an object, you are editing only the version of the object that exists in the particular environment you selected. The same object may exist in other environments, and these versions are not affected by any changes you make to the edited version. If you want all your environments to contain the same version of an object, you have to migrate that object to each environment. For more information on, see Running a Migration (Generic Applications) .
