How to Edit a MET/CAL procedure

You have downloaded a MET/CAL procedure or you have a MET/CAL procedure written by a co-worker that needs to be updated or fixed in some way.  You will need to find the original source code first. If you are running PXE files, the source code you need to look for will be a project directory or project zip file. 

If you are running procedures from a proc.dir file, much of this instruction will not apply.  Contact

1 - If you found a project zip file, extract it to a folder, use your unzip program to "extract to" or "extract all" to a convenient location.

That extracted folder should now look like this:


I created a folder called "proctemp" and I extracted the zip file into a sub-folder the same name as my procedure project zip.

2 - To open the project, simply double click on the "mcproj" file highlighted above if you don't have your MET/CAL Editor open or using the File>Open>Project if you do have Editor opened.  

3 - Make your edits.  Compiling (F9) as you go.  If you get errors, the help key is F1, this can help you with any syntax errors.  

4 - Once you have made all of the necessary changes, click on the project name in the solution explorer, as shown:


5- From the Build menu at the top of the screen, click "Publish Package".  Your updates to the individual files will be saved and a new PXE file will be created for you to save where you choose.  If you launch your procedures from within MET/TEAM you will also have to add this new pxe file and make the original file inactive in the procedure record and the type procedure default.
