Deleting Databases

Sometimes you may create a database with File ⇒ New Database, and later decide that you don't need it. To delete a database / Organization Name, do the following:


1)Check what its filename is, in Maintenance ⇒ Organization Info (the File Name field).

2)Switch into another database, with File ⇒ Open Database.

3)Use Tools ⇒ Explore Data Directory to open a Computer / Windows-Explorer-type window viewing the program’s Data Directory.

4)In that window, drill into the Data subdirectory, which is where the databases live.

5)Carefully find the one with the filename you found in step (1) above, and delete it.
