This dialog opens with Options for … available from the context menu in the Project Workspace — Files tab. The context menu  opens with a right mouse click on a file or group. 

Path, Type, Size, Last Change
Outputs information about the file selected.
Include in Target Build
Disable this option to exclude the group or source file in this project target. If this option is not set, µVision will not translate and not link the selected item into the current target. This is useful for configuration files, when you are using a single  project file for several different hardware systems.
Always Build
Enable this option to re-translate a source module with every build process, regardless of source file modifications. This is useful when a file contains __DATE__ and __TIME__ macros that are used to stored version information in the application program.
Generate Assembler SRC File
Only available for C51, C166 and C251: Instructs the C compiler to generate an assembler source file from this C module. Typical this option is used when the C source file contains #pragma asm / endasm sections.
Assemble SRC File
Use this option together with the option Generate Assembler SRC File to translate the assembler source code generated by Compiler into an object file that can be linked to the application.
Link Publics Only
Only available for C51 and C251: Instructs Linker to link only PUBLIC symbols from that module. Typical this option when you want to use entry or variable addresses from a different application. It refers in the most cases to an absolute object file which may be part of the project.
Code Bank
Only available for C51 and C251: Assigns the program code of a file or file group to a specific code bank. Requires that you enable code banking in the Options — Target dialog.
Stop on Exit Code
Specify an exit code when the build process should be stop on translator messages. By default, µVision translates all files in a build process regardless of error or warning messages.
Memory Assignment
Only available for RealView ARM: assign a file or group to specify memory regions. Code/Const (RO), Zero Initialized Data (ZI), and standard data (RW) areas can be selected. Note that you should enter the available memory regions in the Target dialog and enable  Use Memory Layout from Target Dialog in the Linker dialog.
Select Modules to Always Include
Only available for C51, C166 and C251: Allows you to always include specific modules from a Library.
Custom Arguments
This line is required if your project contains files that need a Custom Translator.
