In Tecware, you can either use "Import Files" or "Insert files" to load data.

The Import is automatically detecting the format based on file name extension and file header. In most cases ,the format can be derived from the file without problem:

The Insert Files command allows to specify the format of the file:

Once loaded, Simcenter Tecware will know how to read that file and throughout the software all files can be used in the same way.

 

Simcenter Tecware can be accessed with Testlab tokens as of Revision 17.  Check out the details on how to install and run Tecware from Simcenter Testlab.

Is it possible to write to 'LMS Pimento/Roadrunner (SKALAR20-TDF)' using Tecware?

 

I have the Test.Xpress Export Extension Pack which allows me to export to this format from Test.Xpress but would also like to export from LMS Tecware ConForm (command line) using this format.

No, I'm sorry. Tecware cannot export to 'LMS Pimento/Roadrunner (SKALAR20-TDF)'.

 

But you can use Testlab LDSF files "LMS Data Streaming Format (LDSF)". You can export this format in Tecware and import it in Test.Xpress.

 

I hope that helps.
