Closing BW ProjectsLocate this document in the navigation structure

If you do not want to process a project as an active project, you can close it. When a project is closed, its sub-nodes no longer appear in the Project Explorer view, but they still reside in the local file system. Closed projects require less memory.


  1. Select one or more BW projects.
  2. Open the context menu and choose Close Project.


The project node is still visible in the Project Explorer view. This means that you can reopen the project whenever you need it.

  • You can close an open connection to the BW system (log off) by closing a BW Project.
  • You can reopen a BW project by selecting it in the Project Explorer view and choosing Open Project in the context menu.
  • You can hide closed projects in the Project Explorer menu by using the Start of the navigation path View Menu Next navigation step Customize View End of the navigation path function.
