18.1 Objects included in Package

The second tab, Cross Referenced Objects, details all objects included in the Package, that is objects specifically selected for inclusion in the Package and any cross referenced objects added to the Package when it is built.

Use the Save to File option on the Selected Objects tab or Cross Referenced Objects tab to create a text file of the objects.

The Delete option can be used remove objects from the Package.  If any objects are removed from the Package, the Package will need to be re-built.

The File Version and Build Date and Time are picked up from the package definition if the package has been built.  If the package has not been built this information is collected from the current partition's execute directory.
