Hi all,

I copied some Survey Data of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 for Surveyors to my C3D 2013 machine few weeks ago. Now I cannot do the "Import point file" of the Survey2 Data B in Survey Databases, because the Survey2 Data B is locked up - see the attached file that has a red cicle with an arrow on.  Please kindly help and tell me how I can unlocked the locked Survey 2 Data in the Survey Databases.

Thanks in advance,

Scott Chang

First try rigtht clicking on the name "Survey2 Data B" and choose "close survey database".

Now try "open for edit".
