About Naming Patterns

Naming Patterns are used in batch predictions to automatically generate sensible file names for reports. The Default naming pattern is selected by default, but you can use other patterns by clicking the Library button, then selecting from the list.


The name tag in the Default naming pattern contains the pipe character (|), indicating that the following hierarchy is used to name each report:

  • Structure tag name

  • Name on the first line of the Molfile

  • Input filename, followed by the compound's positional number in the file

The process number is included in all report names using this Naming Pattern.

If you process the same compound twice and generate the same report type using the same calculated report name, for example <structure name>_<process number>.pdf, your original report could be overwritten with the results from the most recent process.
