Hello,

I have a lengthy sync batch job that I need to modify to change the target network name. Doing this one at a time in the normal method will be very time-consuming. Is there any way to edit the batch file that is generated or some type of global change ?

Thanks very much !

Hi,

I have currently a very long list of folders that VP is synching for me. But a new system is replacing the old one and it has a new network name. So I would like an easy way to do a global change of the old system name to new system name. I did create the profile shortcut but cant edit that file directly. I did see a very old post here about editing a "Project" file but it was dated 2005 and I cant find any references to a project in current version.

So essentially I just don't want to go through the GUI and manually type each line over with new network name.

Am looking for some method to do a global change in the VP profile which has the synch commands.


Here is the profile name: c:\documents and settings\rich\my documents\viceversa pro 2\updated profile nov 2007.fsf

Any way to edit this file and make the global changes? Its a very long list and would be time consuming and error prone to edit each line.

Thank very much !

Hi
I just found an old post which states that the fsf file is actually a text file in unicode format. I opened it with a different edit and it worked fine !!

This probably needs to be documented someplace in the help so people realize the file can be edited directly and not use the GUI.

Thank you !

Hello
I was about to reply your post ... Smile Yes, the .fsf are text files (UNICODE to support all characters in all languages), so you can search and replace text in them with a text editor.
thanks
