Package files

Package files are special text files that are used to deliver customizations made with the Modifier, VBA, and the Report Writer. A developer can create a package file that contains their customizations, move the package file to the destination workstation, then import the customizations into the installation.

A package file can contain the following items:

Modified forms   Forms that have been customized with the Modifier.

New or modified reports   Reports that have been created or customized with the Report Writer.

VBA forms   Forms that have VBA code attached.

VBA reports   Reports that have VBA code attached.

VBA components   User forms, code modules, or class modules created with the VBA development environment.

References   References to external components used by VBA. A package file cannot contain the actual components referenced by the VBA customization. Those components must be delivered separately.
