I would like to migrate my 2016 R2 databases to AS 2017. Could someone tell me which databases actually get migrated and what gets left behind? We have quite a few profiles that we use all the time but they did not migrate from 2015.1 to 2016 R2 and we had to put them in manually again. Do the profiles we have modified get put in the zzzObsolete section? And do the wood sections get migrated as well?Thank you.

Hello Russ,You had this issue between 2015.1 and 2016 because they changed the nomenclature you should be good for 2017. In worst case scenario, you can copy paste the content of a table into another database. The most important databases are: AstorBase, AstorSettings, AstorProfiles, AstorRules, AstorGrating and the Astor AddIn can be copy pasted.Regards,

Dear Mr. Russ Parker,I have attached a PDF of the Advance Steel Astor bases and their location along with their descriptions relating to what they are linked with.It also describes which databases get converted and which databases you just copy and paste. To avoid lengthy updating copy your Prototypes to the relevant folder in Advance Steel 2017.Open the file with Advance Steel. Use the Save as option, and select AutoCAD® 2013 as the file format. Custom connections (user joints) are saved as dwg files, so to convert them and make the custom joints from Advance Steel 2016 available in 2017 version, it is required to: Copy the dwg file to the Advance Steel 2017 path.Advance Steel 2016custom connections are stored in the following path: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Advance Steel 2016\Shared\ConnectionTemplates. The destination folder associated to Advance Steel 2017 is: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Advance Steel 2017\Shared\ConnectionTemplatesI hope this helps,Regards,Janet
