To start using a new, blank database
- Determine current database file
- Close the program.
- Rename the database file that you discovered in step# 1. For example, if the database file was HicDatabase.hdf then you could rename it to HicDatabase120310.hdf if today's date was December 3, 2010.
- Start HICSOAP.
- It will complain about not being able to find the database. Don't choose to restore or repair. Click to create a new, blank database.
Now you have HICSOAP working with a new, blank database and you still have your old database with a different name which you choose in step #3.
