Resource Lists

The Resource Lists report is used to view the names of resources and their associated resource ID numbers. It is also useful for identifying the dictionary core and module in which specific resources are located. Refer to Dictionary Structure for more information about the structure of a dictionary.

To use the Resource Lists report, open a source dictionary and choose Resource Lists from the Reports menu. The Resource Lists window will appear.

  1. Select a dictionary module.

From the Dictionary Modules list, select the dictionary module that contains the resources for which you want to view information. The Resource Types list will be filled with the resource types that are part of the selected module.

Each specific module won’t necessarily contain all the types of resources that can be stored in that module. For example, if you select a form module that doesn’t have any local data types, you won’t see Data Type as one of the entries in the Resource Types list.

  1. Select the appropriate resource types.

Select a resource type from the Resource Types list and click Insert to display the resource type in the Selected Resource Types list. Repeat this process to include information for as many dictionary modules and resource types as you want. To insert all resource types displayed in the Resource Types list into the Selected Resource Types list, mark the All Resource Types check box and click Insert.

To remove an item you’ve inserted in the Selected Resource Types list, select it and click Remove. Click Remove All to clear the list and begin again.

  1. Print the report.

Click Print to print the report for the resource types in the Selected Resource Types list. The Report File Name dialog box will appear. Enter the name and location for the Resource Lists report, then click Save.
