When this option is enabled, the default Save filename will have a 3-digit number appended to it which is incremented for each new Save. You can edit the default name (or the number) in the Save dialog, and subsequent Saves will be incremented from there.
For example, the initial Daqarta default Save filename is 'Data'. If you toggle Auto-Increment Filenames on before you save the first file, the default will show up as 'Data-000'. If that's not the name or value you want, you can edit it to something else... let's say 'BigTest-100'. That's the name that will be given to the file you are now saving. The next time you save a file, the default will be 'BigTest-101'.
Auto-Increment always uses three digits and always has a dash as a spacer. That helps to separate it from names that already end in a mumber, as in 'Proj2007-003'. When the incrementing portion reaches '-999' it stops incrementing. The next time you try to save a file, the default will be unchanged; if you accept it, you will be notified that the file already exists and asked if you want to overwrite it. That would be a good time to change to a different base name and start a new number series.
The same base name and incrementing number series are used regardless of the type of file you are saving. For example, if you save 'Data-000' as a .DQA file and then wish to also have a .TXT version of the same data, the default would nevertheless increment to 'Data-001' for the .TXT file. You might want to manually set that back to 'Data-000' so that you can tell it's from the same raw data. Then when you subsequently go to save a new .DQA file, the default will be 'Data-001' as desired.
Note that Auto-Increment only applies to file Save, not Open.
AutoInc=1 turns this feature on.
AutoInc=0 turns it off.
AutoInc=x toggles to the opposite state.
