Turning on the configuration variable when a merging another SURVRD01 file

When I merge one SURVRD01 file into another SURVRD01 file. The SURVRD01 file that is being merged is having its field books dropped. I was told through another source that Bentley has this configuration variable turned off by default. I would like to turn this configuration variable on. However, I do not know the name of this variable or where it is located. Therefore, I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

Sincerely,

  • In my experience, civil data is excluded when merging one file into another. I was unaware of a variable to enable civil data to be merged, but now that you mention it, I will do some research and see if there is indeed a variable
