Import AquaChem 2014... [HGA+ only]

Use this option to import an AquaChem 2014 project (*.aqc).  Note that if the .aqc file was developed using an older version of AquaChem, you may need to upgrade it using AquaChem 2014.2 before to importing it into Hydro GeoAnalyst 10.0. For more information, see the topic on Importing AquaChem 2014 Projects.



Close the project which is currently open.



This menu item provides a list of projects that have been recently opened. The most recent project will appear at the top. Simply select the desired project, and it will be loaded into HGA.
