Delete a database

If a database is no longer required, the best practice is to remove that database from your project. This ensures that you do not have an unused or obsolete database cluttering up your project.

Important If a database is removed from a project, the database itself is not deleted. For local fuzzy databases, you can manually remove the associated *.csv or .txt file if they are not being used by another project.

You can remove a database from your project by following these steps:

  1. On the Project tab, in the Configuration group, select Project Settings Project Settings icon.
  2. Click the Databases tab to view the databases settings.
  3. On the list of databases, select the database you are deleting.
  4. Click Remove Delete icon.
  5. When prompted, click Yes to confirm the deletion.
  6. Optionally, click OK to close the Project Settings window.
  7. Save the changes to your project.
