    Hi barrysab,

    Almost all files in the data directory including .rux and .blb files can be modified in some form through Server Explorer. Modifying files directly in the data directory is generally a bad thing to do unless you know what you are doing.

    .Rux files contain cube rules. To access these via Server Explorer, right click on a cube and select Edit Rule.

    .blb files can represent various objects but a common one is a file in an application folder.

    In both cases, you will need some form of administration rights to make these changes via Server Explorer.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi barrysab,

    Sure, if there is there is another scenario you have for editing objects directly via the data directory then post here and I am sure there is a forum member than can make a suitable suggestion.

    As always, make sure there is a suitable back up process in place before changing anything.

    If you are TM1 Admin then you should be able to see/edit the rules in the Rules Editor. To see/edit the rules you dont really have to do this outside of TM1.
    Cheers!
