Saving a configuration file

If you have made any changes to a configuration file, even if you are not ready to issue these changes, you must save your work before exiting iBridge Designer or the changes will be lost.

You will be allowed to open the configuration file using iBridge in Analyst's Notebook for verification purposes but only if it is valid. You will be warned that the file has not been issued. To release the configuration file for use by the analysts, you must issue it and copy it to a central location.

To save a configuration file, select File > Save. Your file will also be validated as part of the save operation.
Note: If your database contains Unicode fields (NChar and NVarchar) and the SQL Server Unicode DB check box is not turned on in the Advanced page of the Properties dialog, a message is displayed when you save the configuration file.
