Save As Button:
Saves the project with different name. This is the most important operation on toolbar. SCADA project uses SQL Server 2005 for several operations. Therefore first step of creating project is creating Database. More than one same named project can be created in different folders. But all database names must be unique. Save As operation produce another database name if same named database exists. Given database name can be checked from Control Panel. Additionally, Save As operation doesn't transfers unused files to newly creating project. There are a many files created for the related to objects that used in project. These files won't deleted even related objects removed from the project. Save As made without these files. So, size of the project reduced. However it does not effect the speed.
