Importing a process file

Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge provides the Import feature, which enables you to import external projects into your current workspace. You can also extract an archive file as a project into your workspace.
To import a process file:
1. From File menu, click Import to launch the Import wizard.
2. Select General > Existing Projects into Workspace, and then click Next.
3. To navigate to existing projects, click Browse beside the Select root folder option to open the Browse for Folder dialog box.
Alternately, click the Select archive file option and click Browse to navigate to any of the supported archive files to import. Click OK, to return to the Import wizard.
4. From the Projects section, select all (or one) of the projects to be imported into your workspace.
5. Select the Copy projects into workspace check box (available only for Select root folder option) to create a copy of the external projects in your workspace.
6. Click Finish to start importing.
The application appears in the Project Explorer view. Expand the application folder to reveal the SPT or SWT file in the processtemplates folder, and double-click the file to display it in the Content pane.
