PROBLEM

 

Operator is not able to configure the parameters under the Data File tab in Basic Testware (BTW) Test Setup because they are grayed out (Figure 1).

ANSWER

This means the Data Acquisition has not been defined yet and is Disabled (Figure 1).

 

Figure 1 – Data Acquisition Disabled

 

Go to the Data Acquisition tab and define the type of data acquisition you want, i.e., Timed (Figure 2).  Once that is done go back to the Data File tab.  It should not be grayed out after that.

 

Note:  File Name: may still be grayed out unless you have chosen User Specified next to Destination File: (Figure 2).
