Manage Standards Databases

The Manage Standards Databases command is used to create, modify, and delete standards databases. Each standards database has its own set of customization settings. Multiple standards databases are used when more than one set of standards is used in a company.

To manage your standards databases, go to

DM HVAC->Customization->Manage Standards Databases

If only one standards database exists, you will be prompted to create another one. If you do not create another database, the command will end. If you do create another database, the command will continue with the Select Standards Database dialog box.

If more than one standards database exists, the Select Standards Database dialog box will be displayed.

Each standards database is a separate file stored in your customization folder. The file name will be "dm_elec-standards<Name>.dm". The name of the standards database is displayed in the dialog box and used to fill in the <Name> placeholder in the file name. The default standards database does not have anything in the <Name> placeholder in the file name.

Rename: Press this button to rename the selected standards database. The name that is displayed and the name of the file will be changed.

New: Press this button to create a new standards database. A new standards database file will be created in the customization folder.

Copy: Press this button to copy the selected standards database. A new standards database file will be created in the customization folder. The newly created standards database will have the same settings as the one it is being copied from.

Delete: Press this button to delete the selected standards database. The standards database file will be deleted from the customization folder.
