    Is there a way I can rename my database? it’s currently called “Sample Database”. I would like to change it to the clinics name.

    Hi gdosteopathy,

    Thanks for your post. You can change the name yes, but the process to do this depends on which version of ClinicOffice you have.

    If you have the Local Edition (Start-Up/Pro) then please do the following:

    1. From the PC that hosts your database, open Windows file explorer.
    2. Locate the COV5_Data folder. (Usually this is located under C:COv5_Data)
    3. Open the COV5_Data folder and locate your database.
    4. Right-Click and rename the file to the desired database name.
    5. Re-Open ClinicOffice and from the log on screen, select ‘Manage Databases’.
    6. Click ‘Add Database’, ‘This Computer’ and locate your newly named database.
    7. Make sure you can log onto the database, and then remove the old name from the list.

    For Server Editions the database can be renamed using pgAdmin.

    **One word of warning** Changing your database name can cause problems for your Pioneer Software backup program. If you are not sure what to do or how to reconfigure or check this, please give us a call on 01205 205500 and we can assist with the process.
