Answer

The names of profiles sections can be modified in the AstorProfiles2010.mdb database. To do this you need to perform the following steps:

1. Launch the Management tools.

3. Open AstorProfiles2010.mdb from its default location on the disk: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Graitec\Data

4. Open the table corresponding to the profile for which you want to modify a section name (e.g. EXT_IPE which corresponds to the IPE profile).

5. Each record in the table corresponds to a section from the IPE class. The name of a section can be modified in two locations:

a. In the available languages columns. Scroll the table to the right until you find the columns with the section names translated in the available languages. Modify the section name in the cell corresponding to the current language of the Advance Steel interface.

b. If the current language column is empty, you can find the section name in the "Standard Name" column.
Warning! Do not modify the entries in the "SectionName" column, as these entries represent the internal names of the profiles, which are used by Advance Steel.
