This function is needed if you want to work separately on a component of a larger project. If you save the system assembly or network as a separate document you can open it without having to open the entire project. At the same time it remains part of the larger project.

1. When creating a new System Assembly or Reservations Network check the Create new document option.

2. Enter a file name in the box that displays and click OK. The new document appears in the specifications tree as a child of whichever element you created it under.

3. When you save the project a dialog box will ask if you want to proceed with other document save operations. Click OK.
