Hi,
I have a huge RCWintrans project with more than 500 files.
The folder structure changed and I would like to know if it's possible to update the "file reference" properties by script or macro.
It will be very time consuming and risky to do this file by file throught the interface.
I tried to open the fsmdb with msAccess, and changed the "FileName" in the ""SourceFiles" Table, but when I open the project then, I got an error "file not exist...'
Thanks for the help

This does not work because the path must be changed in the project definition file .rwtproject and in the database (.fsmdb).
Do not change the path manually!

Question: Is your database file (.fsmdb) located in a root directory relative to (all) the source files?
..then you can move your project structure (folders + files + RC-WinTrans database) to the new location.
This is possible when RC-WinTrans is using a relative path from the project file (.rwtproject, .fsmdb) to each source file.
.
You can check if a relative path to a source file is used:
- open the project definition file .rwtproject (it is a Windows INI file)
- for a/each file check the entry...

Example for two entries with a relative path:
[ROJECTFILE0]
WorkingFile=..\sub2\srcfilea.rwtxlf
[ROJECTFILE1]
WorkingFile=subdir\srcfileb.rwtxlf

When no drive or server name is used for the 'WorkingFile' then it is a relative path and the whole project can be moved.
Please check this and let me know.

With a script the path cannot be changed. Only via the GUI but file by file: "Changing a Source File Reference"

Hi,
Changing path in both xxx.rwtproject and xxx.fsmdb seems worked (even manually)
Thanks a lot
