If the process that is running your Link does not have access to the specified folder, you can enter the username and password of a user who has the necessary privileges. Click 'Show' to reveal the password – if the user is set up for this.

Here you have four options:

  • None: No action is taken.
  • Append to existing file: If a file with the same filename exists, append content to that file.
  • Create new file: A new file will always be created.
  • Overwrite existing file: If a file with the same filename exists, overwrite it.

Note that fields marked with * are required.
