Use the Restore/Check In dialog to restore and/or check in plan data and other items that have been backed up to a Planner CS backup file (*.bck). Among the items are custom reports, report layouts, report sets, graphs, letter templates, preparer options, Watch Window templates, and federal interest rates.

To open this dialog, choose File > Restore > From a Planner CS Backup. In the Restore Backup From dialog, navigate to the location of the file *.bck (where * represents the name of the file) and click the Open button.

Restoring a plan overwrites any existing plan with the same Plan ID.
