Selecting Target Files
In order for a merge operation to take place, a target file must be designated as the destination for the source data. A target file may be set prior to a merge operation by clicking on an eligible file to select it, and choosing Set as Target under the File menu.
Eligible target files include existing E-Prime merged data files, or merged data files (.emrg3) created during a merge operation using the Set Target dialog. If the target file is set prior to the merge operation, the Set Target File dialog appears as a confirmation of the chosen target file.
NOTE: If the target file is in a different folder than the active folder, the merge operation will require the user to navigate to the target even though it may have previously been set as the target. This is viewed as a necessary inconvenience to prevent accidental merging to the wrong target file.
