Saving connection properties

You can save your connection properties for later use. The connection properties are saved with a .conn extension in location specified in the Preferences window. On loading the connection properties file, the current properties are replaced with the properties stored in the file.


  1. Create a new connection configuration file. For information on creating a new connection configuration file, see related topics.
  2. Click the Save the Connection Properties or Save Connection Properties icon icon or Save the connection properties to a file Save As icon icon on the tool bar. The connection properties are saved in a .conn file in the specified location as Default Connection Properties Location in Preferences window. The default location also specifies the location of the properties files list when you are loading a properties file.
    Note: Loading the saved properties file replaces the current properties with those stored in the file.
  3. Type a file name.
  4. Click OK.
