Editor 8.1 Saving an Edited Procedure Process

I've edited an existing procedure with a different standard and named the replacement standard at the begining Instrument line from ****/9640 to /4422. Compiling presented no trouble found so I "Save All". But it won't run at Runtime, there were many error messages with not found sub procedures. 

I still can't wrap my head around this new process. Can someone list up the steps to do? From graping the existing procedure to the final, operatable procedure? I read many discussions of mc file and PXE but I'm still very confused!

Changing the title only changes the title. The 9640 procedure probably uses the 9640 FSC. There isn't a 4422 FSC that I'm aware of. Fluke used to have procedures using the HFSG Flexible Standard, but I can't find any now. See:

download.flukecal.com/pub/literature/3308149_6200_ENG_A_W.PDF

 I'm not even sure which of the Flexible Standards are still supported. I use the DMM and FGEN a lot. But none of the others.

In the 7.3 and earlier versions world, all I need to do after substitute the gold procedure's standard to my locally available standard and its appropriate codes, is to save the newly edited work as new procedure with the INTRUMENT line changed to reflect its new standard(s). 

Editor 8 keeps me looping inside the development stage.

I'm still trying to find my way out to arrive at the final product!

Does the procedure you're trying to modify use the 9640 FSC? Or does it use something like [@9640] commands? Do you have any other procedures that work using the E4422?

The original procedure uses 9640 FSC. I replaced them with IEEE [@4422] and appropriate replacement codes. The modified main and sub procedures run with no issue until I change all the associate INTRUMENT line to /4422 to reflect the changes. That's where I got stuck with error messages of not finding the sub routines!

Did you change the subroutine titles to /4422?

After you make any changes to the procedure and subprocedures be sure to Build (pull down) Publish Selected procedures.

The problem you're running into is that the save function only saves that locally created text file version of the procedure. You need to publish the procedure, either to PXE or the proc.dir file.

If there are sub-procedures, your best bet is to get them all into a project together so when you publish, it publishes everything.

File>New>Project from existing procedure

Check the "Exclude Hidden Procedures" box and navigate to the proc.dir with your old procedure, then select the main procedure and hit select.

That will take you through some windows to create a project with that old procedure. Make your edits that you need, save everything, then use the Build menu in editor to publish in the desired format. Build Soluton or Build [Name of Project] will create the PXE files in the directory where the procedure files for the project you created were saved. If you want to just publish to a proc.dir, you'll want to highlight all the procedures in your project, then Build>Publish Selected Procedures To... and select the proc.dir where you want them to go.
