  • An engagement file cannot be renamed within Windows Explorer.
  • The rename function is not available within an engagement file (File | Close will return you to the welcome screen).


Follow the steps below to rename an engagement file:

    1. Launch CaseWare Working Papers.
    2. From the left hand side, select Rename File. The rename file dialog will appear.
    3. Browse to the file you wish to rename.
    4. In the New Name field, enter desired name.
