Extracting from S+ Engineering 2.1 and higher

  1. Open S+ Engineering
  2. Go to Administration Project Admin (if you do not see Administration on the left sidebar, you may need to navigate back up with ⏎ Back first)
  3. If your project is still open, in the top ribbon-style menu click on Close under Projects in the "General" category to close your project.
  4. Select your project from the table, and then in the top ribbon-style menu under Projects, click on Backup in the "Advanced" category.
  5. Make note of the backup location. By default it is likely to be C:\SymphonyPlus\backup.
  6. Start the backup and wait for it to finish. You should now have a folder along the lines of C:\SymphonyPlus\backup\Project_Name\Project_Name_2019.5.22_12.33 containing a PostgreSQL database backup.
  7. Ensure that folder is available to BuildPlus (for instance via copying it to a network share). You can now follow the Specifying the project name and system file specifications instructions to add your Symphony Plus database to your project (presuming you have DBDOC 11.1 or later).
