This utility allows you to update the series resource lists in a dictionary. Series resource lists contain the names of forms, reports, tables and table groups in the application dictionary, grouped according to their assigned series. Series resource lists allow the names of resources of a specific type and series to be retrieved quickly, instead of requiring that a script check each resource and determine its series. If necessary, you can use this procedure to manually update the series resource lists.
If you want to update all series resource lists for a dictionary, mark the All Resource Types and All Series options and click Update. All series resource lists will be updated. If you want to specify the type and series to be updated, follow the steps in the following procedure.
To update series resources, select an editable dictionary, then choose Series Resources from the Resources menu to display the Series Resources window.
Select the appropriate resource type and series from the respective lists. You can select from four types of resources: forms, reports, tables and table groups.
Once your selections are made, the Resources list will automatically display the names of any resources of the specified type and series that are in the series resource lists. This list is informational only. It indicates which resources of the specified type and series currently have entries in the series resource lists. You won’t see additions, deletions or changes to the series resource lists until you update them.
The following options allow you to specify how extensive the update will be.
All Resource Types Mark this option if you want to update the series lists for all resource types (forms, reports, tables and table groups) in the selected series.
All Series Mark this option if you want to update the series resource lists for resources of the selected type for every series.
Mark both options if you want to update all series resource lists.
After the resource type and series are selected and you’ve marked your options, click Update to complete the process.
