Create/Interactive Physical Commodity Data - PDS - Reference Data

Plant Design System (PDS) Reference Data Manager (PD_Data)

Reference Data

This option enables you to process physical dimension table source files and insert the specified files into the active library. You can process a single table file or specify a list of files to be created. Refer to the description of the applicable table file for information on naming conventions and file formats.

Before Using This Command

  • Set the default table path and node in the Default Project Control Data.

  • To add more than one table file to the library, create a list file which identifies the names of the table source files to be added. The list file should contain one entry (source file name) per line. The list file and all the source files should reside in the defined default table directory.

Operating Sequence

  1. Select the Create option.

  2. Set the toggle to Single to process a single source file or to List to process a list file.

  3. Specify Filename for processing

    Key in the name of the table file or list file to be processed and added to the active library.

    The system displays the default node name and path for the table files, as specified in the Default Project Control Data, at the bottom of the form.

    You can use the default setting or modify these fields to override the default location for this operation.

  4. Accept or Select Other Option

    Accept the file and begin processing.

    The system processes the source file and, if successful, it stores the resulting object file in the active library and stores the source file in the associated text library.
