To Update Existing Logical Sets in a Datasource Recently Upgraded from a Pre-V8.1 Version

  1. Open the Scan for Reference Files and Link Sets wizard and click Next.

  2. On the Specify Scan Options page:
    1. Keep Scan for master and referenced documents turned on.
    2. Turn off Scan for DGN Link Sets.
    3. When finished, click Next.

    The Select Master Files and Folders page opens, which lets you select the work areas, folders, and individual documents you want to scan for master documents.

    If you opened the wizard by selecting Tools > Scan References and Link Sets, then this page is empty by default. If you opened the wizard by selecting one or more documents then selecting Document > Set > Scan References and Link Sets, or by selecting one or more folders then selecting Folder > Scan References and Link Sets, the selected documents or folders are automatically listed on this page.

  3. On the Select Master Files and Folders page:
    1. Click the Select Folder icon to add work areas or folders to scan.
    2. Click the Select Document icon to add individual documents to scan.
    3. Turn on Update references from current set.

      This option accelerates the scanning process so that only existing logical sets are located and updated. When this option is on, no attempt is made at creating new sets, therefore you do not need to configure priority or proximity searches for references.

    4. When finished, click Next.

    The Master Folder Settings page opens, which lets you select whether or not to scan the subfolders and sub-work areas of the selected folder or work area. By default, each folder or work area in the list is not set to have their subfolders and sub-work areas scanned (the check box next to the item is off). On this page you can also restrict the scan to only include documents associated to selected application(s).

  4. On the Master Folder Settings page:
    1. (Optional) Turn on the check box next to any folder or work area if you want their subfolders/sub-work areas to be scanned.
    2. (Optional) To only scan the folders and work areas listed for documents associated to certain applications, select one or more applications from the Application list.
      Note: The application filter only applies to folders and work areas, and does not apply to documents individually listed on this page. Individually listed documents will be scanned regardless of the application filter set here.
    3. When finished, click Next.

    The Reference File Search Options page opens, which lets you specify a log file to which scanning results will be saved. The Search Order list is disabled (and no order is specified), because you are only updating existing sets and no search method/order for references is required.

  5. On the Reference File Search Options page:
    1. If you want to save the results of the scan to a log file, then enter the path to and including the name of a new or existing log file in the Log File Name field. If you need more than just the basic logging, then also turn on Enable detailed logging.

      You can set the path to the log file by typing in the field or by clicking Browse and selecting a location and name for the file. You must specify an existing folder in which to store the log file. If you type the name of a log file that does not exist, it will be created when the scan is initiated. If you select an existing log file, the contents of the file will be overwritten with the new scanning results.

    2. When finished, click Next.
  6. Click Scan to start scanning.

    Progress of the scan displays in the wizard. When the scanning is finished, you are presented with a summary of what occurred in the scan.

  7. (Optional) If you specified to use a log file, click View Log.
  8. Click Close to close the wizard.
