You can create and edit Test Programs in external applications as long as the final result conforms to the text file format used to import Test Programs into the easy-wire database. You can use any application that can save to either an ASCII text file or a CSV comma delimited file.

Test Programs in the easy-wire software exist as part of a database and not as separate files. After creating Test Programs in external applications, it is necessary to import test programs into the database and do so in a set format. The best way to follow this format is by creating a template test program in the easy-wire editor:

  • Create a test program that contains the basic block formatting  
  • Export the test program you are using as the template 
  • Make changes using an external application or create a new external file using that template
  • Import file into easy-wire.
