I am making major changes to my chart of accounts so want to create a "new company" file. I want to keep the old file for historical purposes. How do I change the company file name of the old file so I can differentiate between this and the new file? I would like the two company files to appear in the drop down list "open previous company" But I would like the new amended file to have the old file name as this corresponds with the company's legal name. Thank you

Make a portable backup. Restore it to the Q drive with a different name
