Checking extracted directory sources

The ComposerDir.txt file in the project directory, also accessed within BuildPlus from the Tools menu, by selecting Check Extracted Directory Sources.

When building a project which uses Composer or 800xA (formerly PPA) databases, BuildPlus (Decomposer) extracts the files from each database file into a folder in your project directory named DecomposerN or PPAN, where N is a number ("1" for the first database, "2" for the second, etc). This tool will list each Composer or 800xA database file used in the current project with its corresponding Decomposer or PPA (800xA) directory.

Displaying project settings and selections

The UserSelections.txt file in the project directory displays the build information for a project.

  • to check which files were included in a build
  • to see the numbers of fields and records in each extracted database

This file may be easily examined from BuildPlus using the Tools menu, and selecting Display Project Settings and Selections

  • Enter the full path to the project, browse to the project, or choose to Display Settings for Currently Open Project.
