The Project window displays files and other items that you have added to your project, which include:
•Data sources (see Adding Data Sources)
•SQL files (see Adding Files)
•Design files (Opening, Saving and Printing Diagrams)
•External files (files external to DatabaseSpy that you can open in the application with which they are registered)
•Favorites (see Favorites)
The Project window provides the following commands:
Create a new project
Closes the active project in the Project window and displays a new, empty project. If a project contains unsaved changes when you click this button, a dialog box appears and you can choose to save changes in the editor window and project modifications. All editor windows are set offline.
Open a project
Shows the Open Project dialog box where you can choose a *.qprj file to open in DatabaseSpy. If there is an unsaved project already open in the Project window, you are prompted to save this project.

Add files to the project
Shows the Open dialog box where you can browse for DatabaseSpy documents (SQL files, design files) that should be added to the project. Files are added to the corresponding folder in the Project window.
Add the active file
