How to Open an Instrument Manager project
Opening an Existing Project
This procedure is used to open an existing EDS project that already has a database. This will usually be a project that you have previously opened from Instrument Manager.
From the "File" menu, select "Create/Open Project".
Click the [Create or Open Project File] button to specify the project file.
Select an existing project file and click the [Open] button.
If the project file has an Instrument Manager project database associated with it, it will now be loaded.
If it does not, then you will be offered the chance to create a database for the project.
The last four projects that were accessed can be opened by choosing them from the list on the File menu.
If the project you open uses a SQL Server database, you may be prompted for a database account username and password, in order to connect to the database.
Instrument Manager can open more than one project at one time. Thus you can copy data from one project to another within Instrument Manager.
