How to: Rename Companies

You may need to rename a company from time to time.

Before you rename a company, you must make sure that you are working in the company that you want to rename and that you are the only user who has access to the company.

To make sure that you are the only user with access to the company

  1. On the File menu, choose Database, and then choose Alter. The Alter Database window opens.

  2. Choose the Options tab, select the Single user check box, and then choose the OK button.

To rename the current company

  1. On the File menu, choose Company, and then choose Rename. The Rename Company window opens.

  2. Replace the current company name with the new name you want to use.

  3. Choose the OK button to accept the new company name.

You can rename a company whenever you want to. You can use this function if you have made a mistake when naming the company, or if you think that a different name will be easier to recognize.

Renaming a company that has been used and already contains data can take some time.
