Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
File When a model is currently loaded in Platinum Paradigm Plus:

1. Choose 'Export' from the 'File' menu.
2. Select 'CASE Data Interchange format (CDIF)'.
3. Click 'Export'.
4. Type the file name for the model you are saving in the 'File Name' text box (press the browse button to select a specific directory).
5. Click 'Open'.

Diagrams are not stored under the CDIF file, thus they will not be imported/exported. The bridge will use the generated CDF file as input.
FILE *.cdf   Mandatory
