Overwrite: Set How Process Output Files Save

Tag: Overwrite

The action Overwrite lets you set the way the applications will save files written by process outputs (e.g. Export).

Detailed Description

The default setting is <Overwrite Value="False"/>. The file will be saved with an incremented file name if saved to the same location as a file with an identical name. If the same process output file is saved again without modification to the file name, it will be incremented again. This will continue until it is no longer possible to save the file due to naming constraints.

When the Overwrite action is set to <Overwrite Value="True"/>, saving to a path where a file with the same name already exists will cause the existing file to be replaced.
