How to rename an old GEMS project for GEOVIA PCBC/PCSLC. 

Having several copies of the same GEMS caving project with different names can be useful when you want to archive an old project or simply rename a copy of the GEMS project to a more appropriate name.

It can also be useful if you want to run different tasks without affecting the main GEMS project database.

Today’s tip will demonstrate the quickest and easiest way to create a new GEMS project with your preferred name. This process can be done for both GEMS Access and GEMS SQL projects.

For this example the existing project that needs to be renamed is called Maxum_SLC_2019 and needs to be renamed to PCSLC_Training2020.

Step 1 | First create a new GEMS project by selecting the menu command File > New > Project and follow the prompts.
