Subject: Saving a system to a new location
I created a system and have been saving it on my local drive. Now that I am done with it, I am trying to save it to our shared network drive. When I do a File, Save As and select the network folder, Prism responds with a message "Could not create New System. Error code 47." I click OK, and another error message come up saying "Unknown database. Unable to complete network request to host. Failed to establish connection. The system cannot find the file specified." I click OK, and now I cannot close this window or exit Prism by any means because this message keeps coming back. I have to go to Taskmanager and End Task. What is going on, and how do I save this system database to our network folder?

PRISM will not let you save to or create on a non-fixed (or external) drive such as a network drive or floppy. But by simply using My Computer or Windows Explorer (which ever you are more comfortable with) and performing normal file management techniques, such as copy (or cut) and paste, the files can be stored elsewhere.
An external drive is defined as a drive using removable media or that is not fixed to the current processor. This means a floppy disk or network drive space is considered external.
Keeping this in mind, remember to work on files that are local but by all means, copying or moving a file to one of these external drives for storage, when not in use, is not a problem.
