Change the Name of the Root Registry Table
By default, SuperCHANNEL expects the root table to be called __SUPER_CHANNEL__, but you can change this.
You will need to change the name of the root registry table if you want to implement multiple registry table sets in a source database.
To change the name of the root registry table, you need to modify a value in SuperCHANNEL's config.txt configuration file. In a default installation, this file is located in C:\ProgramData\STR\SuperCHANNEL\bin
Open config.txt in a text editor.
Make a backup copy of this file before making any changes.
Locate the following section of the file:NONE
# Sets the name of the SuperCHANNEL root registry table # Default name is __SUPER_CHANNEL__ # str.root.table=__SUPER_CHANNEL__
Remove the # to uncomment the final line and change the value to your preferred table name:CODE
# Sets the name of the SuperCHANNEL root registry table # Default name is __SUPER_CHANNEL__ str.root.table=R_Root
