  • QGen Files
    The QGen tool is installed as part of the QAD QXtend installation. During installation, only standard QGen master data (.dat) files that support the current QAD Enterprise Applications release are deployed. If a .dat file does not match the screen (usually because of screen customization), you can use QGen to remap the screen and save the customized .dat file without overwriting the standard one.
    When you install QXtend, the installer now copies the QGen .dat files for the current release of QAD Enterprise Applications to this location:
    < QXtend adapter >/tools/datFiles/standard/
    When you modify the .dat files and do not specify a directory when saving them, customized .dat files are always saved to the < QXtend adapter >/tools/datFiles/ directory, leaving the standard .dat files intact.
    When you load .dat files without specifying a directory, the system first looks for the files under < QXtend adapter >/tools/datFiles/. If the files cannot be found under this directory, the system then loads the standard .dat files under
    < QXtend adapter >/tools/datFiles/standard/.
