Renaming a database

About this task

If you want to change the title of a database, you can edit the title. The database title is the name that appears as the default bookmark name and the name that appears when you choose File - Application - Open. Note that a database name or title is not the same as the database file name. The file name associated with a database is permanent. The only way to change the file name is to make a copy or a replica of the database and give the new database a different file name.


  1. Open the database.
  2. Choose File - Application - Properties.

  3. Enter a new database title.
