GMO Database files
The GMO installation program installs the following database files and uses
them to provide customer information:
A text file database, green2.txt, and a back-up copy called green2-
base.txt
A Microsoft Access database, green2.mdb, and a back-up copy called
green2-base.mdb
The back-up copies allow you to restore the original information to the
databases. For information see
"Restoring the Sample Database" on
page 141

Creating a New Project
SilkTest projects organize all the resources associated with a test set and
present them visually in the Project Explorer, making it easy to see, manage,
and work within your test environment.
SilkTest projects store relevant information about your project, including
references to all the resources associated with a test set, such as plans, scripts,
data, options sets, .ini files, results, and frame/include files, as well as
configuration information, Editor settings, and data files for attributes and
queries. All of this information is stored at the project level, meaning that
once you add the appropriate files to your project and configure it once, you
may never need to do it again. Switching among projects is easy - since you
need to configure the project only once, you can simply open the project and
run your tests.
