More than one dbase file possible?
I would like to make a major import to Mobile Sheets. In this case , I want to keep this import separate from my regular database. I know  Mobilesheets should take care of this no problem, but I do not want to take any chances whatsoever, backups or not. Right now the "Let Mobilesheets manage my files" option is unchecked.

So what are my options? 
1- Backup my database, erase everything and start a new database.

2- Would it be possible to just rename the database file and the db_journal file? One would expect in this case that MS would just re-create a new blank database file under the name "mobilesheets.db".
If this works, seems to me it would be quicker.

3- The ideal in this case would be of having the option of opening a second database file in MS. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think this is possible currently in MS. Has someone already asked for a feature such as this? Or am I the only one who thinks this would be desirable?

It has been asked a few times.

AFAIK you can simply rename in Android version. If it works for W10 iis for Mike to say.
Yes, you can just rename the database file (if you enabled Settings->Storage->Expose Database). Make sure MobileSheetsPro is fullly closed before you do this. MobileSheetsPro will just create a new database file the next time you load it.

Yes, others have asked for the ability to have multiple databases/libraries. It's on my list of things to add when time allows, but I have some other higher priority things that need to be worked first.
