How about attributes (rather than levels) in the ATT file?

Thanks for this great illustration.  My only question is how do I specify the attributes themselves rather than the levels?  Meaning, instead of the program calling it "Attribute 1, 2, 3..." how do I specify "Brand, Screen Size, Sound..."?

The .att file doesn't support inclusion of attribute label.  Attribute labels must be specified in the CBC/HB interface, or later in the market simulator interface, whether using SMRT or our Online Simulator.

After listing your levels you can leave two blanks lines and then list attributes with (continuing the the example from related question)

3 Brand
1 2 3
3 Screen Size
1 2 3
3 Sound
1 2 3
2 Channel Blockout
1 2
2 Picture in Picture
1 2
4 Price
1 2 3 4

The first line is the number of attributes, then you list the number of levels, the attribute name, and then number the levels for each attribute.
