WDOptimizer: Editing and modifying a ".REP" file
HFSQLAvailable only with this kind of connection
Overview
The <MyProject>.REP file contains the list of files used by the application (identifier, logical name and full path of physical file).
The GUID of the analysis is the unique identifier of the analysis linked to the project, containing the description of files. This identifier can be found in the data model editor, in the analysis description ("Options" tab).
The file GUID corresponds to the identifier of logical file. This identifier can be found in the data model editor, in the description window of file ("Notes" tab).
This file is automatically created in the directory of the application and it is filled by the HFSQL engine.
The .REP file

What is the .REP file used for?

The .REP file is used to easily locate the data files that have been used by the WINDEV application or by the WEBDEV site.
The WINDEV application or the WEBDEV site automatically updates the .REP file but it does not often use the .REP file.
This file is used by all the tools that handle the application files, and mainly by the automatic file update, etc.

Example: Updating an application while modifying the analysis

When updating a WINDEV application, the automatic modification of data files is automatically started if the structure of the database is modified.
This procedure uses the .REP file to find the physical files used by the application in order to modify them.
