Common folder

Just want to make sure I'm not missing something.

If I want to make a table available to other tables, I put that table file in the Common folder, if I also want that table available in the program, I need to leave a copy in the Generator folder.

Is that how it's supposed to be, or is there a setting to see the tables in the Common folder?


  • You can use table in 'Generators' folder, outside of 'Common' with
    use: ../Generators/MyTable.ipt

    or you can put your table in 'Common' and in Generators make new table that uses one in 'Common' and just returns the result like:

    use: MyTable.ipt
    Table: MyTableResult
    It's clean and similar to common practice in software development, that let's you keep table logic in single place.
  • Thanks, didn't even think to try the 'use' path being the generators folder. That will solve my main issue, which was duplication of files because you can't 'see' the common folder from the program to make changes to them.
