Extend Result Metadata Table

The Extend Result Metadata Table tool adds one or more Result objects to the Result Metadata Table. The tool outputs a copy of the source Result Metadata Table. The original source table is not modified.

To manually add results to an existing Result Metadata Table, go to:

        Toolbox | Utility Tools (Image utilities_closed_16_n_p) | Result Metadata (Image result_metadata_folder_open_16_h_p) | Extend Result Metadata Table (Image add_to_results_metadata_table_16_h_p)

  1. In the first wizard window, select the relevant Result Metadata Table (see figure 19.9) and click Next.
