Importing project items

You can import ACL project items that exist as separate files outside an ACL project – for example, an ACL script saved as an .aclscript file, or a table layout saved as a .layout file. You can import only one project item at a time.

If you want to import a project item from another ACL project, see Copying project items from other ACL projects.

To import a project item:

  1. In the Overview tab of the Navigator, right-click the ACL project entry and select Import Project Item > [Project Item Type] where Project Item Type is one of the following options:
    • Table

    • View

    • Script

    • Workspace

  2. In the Project dialog box, locate and select the appropriate file type and click Open.

    File types and project items correspond as follows:

    • .layout – Table

    • .rpt – View

    • .aclscript – Script

    • .wsp – Workspace

  3. Click OK in the confirmation dialog box.

    The project item is imported into the current project. If an item of the same type, with the same name, already exists in the project, the imported item is given an incrementing numeric suffix.
