  1. Click File > New > Administration > Vault in the Desktop Client.

  2. In the New Vault dialog box, type a Name and Description for the vault.

    • Do not use numbers for the leading characters of the vault name if you will be performing batch print, PDF generation, title block, or archive and purge operations on files in the vault. These operations fail if the name begins with numeric characters. For example, "Vault1001" is acceptable, but "1001Vault" is not.

    • Do not use spaces in the vault name.

    • Do not start the name of the vault with the letter combination "xml".
