It is often common, and frequently recommended, to make copies of knowledge base documents. One common situtation is to copy and archive a source knowledge base used in a selection or design project along with the selection and design documents. By making a copy, you immediately document all the physical property values used in your decision process.
When you have copies of a knowledge base, it is often neccessary to determine the differences between the copies. The Compare Documents dialog can show differences between the values contained in two knowledge bases.
|Source Knowledge Base: this is typically taken to be the "older" or "original" knowledge base.
|Target Knowledge Base: this is typically taken to be the "newer" or "updated" knowledge base.
|Updated Values Table: lists all values that are present in the target document but not present in the source document.
Detail Button: activates the Detailed Record Values
dialog which displays information about the selected
record that is present in the target document but not
in the source document.
You should understand how to add a new chemical and edit its properties before you work through the next example. See documentation on the Chemicals Chapter for a quick review.
