Manage Standards Databases
|Up Previous Next|
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
Ribbon: DMH: Customization->Customization Utilities->Manage Standards Databases
Pulldown Menu: DM HVAC->Customization->Manage Standards Databases
If only one standards database exists, you will be prompted to create a new one. If you do not create another database, the command will end. If you do create another database, the Select Standards Database dialog box will then appear.
If more than one standards database exists, the Select Standards Database dialog box will appear.
Select Standards Database Dialog Box
Each standards database is a separate file stored in your customization folder. The file name will be "dm_hvac-standards<Name>.dm", where <Name> is the name of the standards database as displayed in the dialog box. If a standards database is named "dm_hvac-standards.dm", it will display as "Default".
The default location for the customization folder is C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Design Master Software\HVAC Customization where <User Name> is the name you use to log in to your computer.
