Automation - Export Wizards

If I have an automation file that contains multiple export wizards. Whenever I edit the export file TDP automatically changes the information to the previously opened wizard data.

For example
Export 1 - Saves to C:\Test.mdb Table 1
Export 2 - Saves to C:\Test2.mdb Table 2

Assuming Export 2 was the most recent file I created
If I edit Export 1 and go through the wizard screens, the path and table is automatically updated to the details of Export 2. (This occurs even if the most recent export wizard file isn’t within the same automation file also)

Is there a way to turn this off?

Thanks

I’ve observed this same behavior when building an export wizard with more than one action - so you’re not alone.

Couldn’t find any options to change it either. Just one in the list of many “quality of life bugs” I seem to keep running into.

Hi Guys,

I’ve confirmed the issue below with exporting to Access - the destination table isn’t correctly being loaded from the template file which is a bug.

Just to clarify one additional point, the original post mentions “path and table”, but I see that the output path is correct on my end (though table is not correct). Can you please clarify what you mean by path?

I’ve created CR #102902 to track, and we should get this fixed for the next release.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,
By path & table I meant, if I were to create a new/edit an export wizard file it will automatically default to the path/table of the last created/edited file. This information could be from a completely different automation file and or a completely different wizard file.
