Automatic rename of DBDOC.M14

When unchecked, the file will be named DBDOC.M14. When checked, the M14 file will be automatically renamed at the end of the build so that it will not be overwritten by future builds. The default is to rename it <Project_name>_<Build_date>.M14.

Omit Project Name (use build date only): With the main renaming option checked, you can choose to leave off the <project_name> and use the date for the .M14 name.

Use Hyperlink version in name: If you are building with different versions of the DBDOC programs, you may want to indicate in the .M14 name which version of Hyperlink was used to build it. This will help to clarify which features/fixes were built into that .M14 when switching between different Hyperlink versions.

Select the date format: This option changes the date format used when creating .M14 file names.

Default: automatic rename on, with project name and build date but no Hyperlink version
