How to transfer mappings in Axis

If you need to transfer mappings from one installation of Axis to another you can do that using the import and export mappings features that are in Axis V7 and above.  Follow these steps:
  1. In the import module in Axis select the mapping that you would like to transfer and then click the export button.
  2. Save the exported mapping to a location that you can reach from the installation of Axis that you wish to import into.
  3. Open the other installation of Axis and go into the import module.
  4. In the mapping drop down list select the option to Import mapping.
  5. Select the mapping file that you previously saved and click Open, the transferred mapping should now appear in the mapping list.
If you are unable to open the instance of Axis that you want to export the maps from then there is another way to retrieve the maps although we do not officially support this method.  The mapping files are stored in this folder C:\ProgramData\Zed\Axis (or C:\Users\Public\Documents\Zed\Axis prior to V14.2) copy the contents of this folder to the new instance of Axis and replace any files there with the older files. 


This only works if the Zed versions are the same. If you are wanting to bring in maps from an older version you will need to recreate them. I used FastStone screencapture to print the map editor screens. And you will have to connect to QB, load the file then select the map and open the editor. FastStone lets you cut out the portions you don't need to get the map to fit on one page for printing.
