Delta Tips: Filename (Part 1)


1. How to customize filenames

JEOL NMR data are automatically saved in the JEOL data format (.jdf) under the filename defined in the storage_filename input box in the Header tab. This input box can contain very useful strings. For example, if the $(SAMPLE)_$(EXP.filename) string is used, the storage_filename is ‘sample-name_experiment-name’. In the figure below, the sample name is ‘CAHE’ while the experiment to be run is ‘proton’, and hence the storage_filename is ‘CAHE_proton’.

  • The storage_filename can also contain the date of experiment if you use this string:
  • Default value in the storage_filename input box can be set in Config - Spectrometer Preferences - Environment – Filename Pattern. See for details. This method does not apply to automation.

2. How to save data files in particular folder

You can have your data files saved in a specified subfolder inside the Data folder. To do so, type the subfolder name into the Project input box of Job Parameters (see the figure below).

② Select the Environment tab. The parameter to modify is Filename Pattern.
If you input the $(YEAR)$(MONTH_NUM)$(DAY_NUM)_$(SAMPLE)_$(EXP.filename) string, the default storage_filename would be ‘YYYYMMDD_sample-name_experiment-name’ (for example, ‘20160623_CAHE_proton’).

③ Select Parameters – Close to close the Instrument Preferences window.
