Data set normalization settings are stored in the Normalization.xml file. To modify the standard normalization settings, the user must download the settings file, make the necessary changes, and then upload the new settings using the appropriate FCAdminTools commands.

Running the UpdateNormalizationSettings file uploads your new normalization settings from the specified file to the Normalization.xml file. To download the file containing the normalization settings to a local folder, use the DownloadNormalizationSettings command.

Important! Once you have modified the Normalization.xml file, update the relevant data set. For more information, see Updating data sets.
