Output File Options

Storage Location

The Storage Location specifies the directory that output file will be written to when migrating this Document Type. It is recommended that a different Storage Location be used for each Document Type. WARNING: If the user specifies Overwrite Output File in the Output File Write Mode and anything other than All Files in Storage Location\Batch Folder in the Shared File Options\File Directory Structure section each batch that is migrated will overwrite the output load file of the previous batch.

Specify a Storage Location by selecting one from the drop down list or by selection “New”. NOTE: Storage Locations can also be defined in the “Storage” tab on the Main Configuration Dialog as covered in the Configured Storage Locations section of this manual.


A new Storage Location can be defined by pressing the ‘New’ button, which will open the Storage Location Definition dialog below. When the new Storage Location is saved, it will be added to the list of Storage Locations and will be automatically selected for the user.
