25.19.3 Saving Files During the Calculation

If the command to be executed during the calculation involves saving a file, you must include a special character in the file name when you enter it in the Select File dialog box so that the solver will know to assign a new name to each file it saves. You can number the files by iteration number or by time step. (These special characters for numbering files are also useful when you are saving window dumps for use in animations, as described in Section  4.14.1.) See Section  4.1.7 for details about these special characters for filenames.


If you want to save case or data files at intervals during the calculation, you must use the Autosave Case/Data panel (opened with the File/Write/Autosave... menu item). See Section  4.3.4 for details.
