Assigning Files to File Groups

After you create the necessary file groups and required parent-child relationships, you can assign executable files, scripts, and macros to file groups.

  1. In the Management Console, select View > Modules > Database Explorer.
  2. Select the file(s) to assign to a file group.
  3. Right-click the file selection.
  4. Select the Assign to File Group option.
    The Assign Files to a File Group dialog opens.
  5. Column Description
    File Name of the file including extension.
    File Path Complete file path name, including the drive.
    Current File Group The file group to which the file currently belongs. Files that are not assigned to a file group are designated as <Not Authorized>.
    Suggested File Group A proposed file group based on the file name. A file having the same name as another file in the database is suggested to belong to the same file group as the initial file.
  6. Select a file group from the drop-down list in the Suggested File Group column.
  7. Click OK.
    The file(s) are assigned to the designated file group.

You can assign a script or macro to a file group as a script, as distinguished from an executable file.
