    Mid-project Program Update (Revit 2011 to 2012) HELP PLEASE!

    Hi all!

    We just received updated models from the architect and the files are now 2012 Revit.
    Up until now everything we had received had been 2011, so that was the version I was working with (we have 2012 also).

    I guess my question is, what is the best way to upgrade my central file from 2011 to 2012 w/o any information loss so that I can apply the new architectural updates?

    Will I even be able to update the linked files to the new files if the file names don't match exactly (ie. old files "A_N_Exterior_13317_2011_Central" & new files "A_N_Exterior_13317_2012_Central")?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post!
    Any help with this is greatly appreciated!

    Sincerely,
    Kcaparella

    Get everyone out of your project. Archive it (however you do). Open the central with an Audit (and a DFC, imho). Once it upgrades, do a Save as and call it whatever your naming convention is... but with 2012. Then go to manage Links, select the arch link > Reload From > select the new file.

    Save > then SWC (relinquish User created elements) > Youre good to go.
