Importing Existing Projects into Workspace
This topic provides information on how to import an Actian DataConnect project (a .project file).
You can import existing projects in the following cases:
If you have transferred an entire project folder to another system and want to import it into your current system.
If someone has sent you a .zip of their project and you want to unzip it and import it into your workspace.
If you create a new workspace and want to import a project that was in the earlier workspace into the new workspace.
To import existing projects into workspace:
1. Go to File > Import.
The Import window is displayed.
2. Expand General, click Existing Projects into Workspace, and click Next.
The Import Projects window is displayed.
3. Select the Select root directory or Select archive file option depending on the source from where you want to import the projects. Click Browse and specify the directory or archive file.
