converting state plane west coordinates to central

Hi Guys,I am a new survey tech and I had a recent project that I shot in Missouri state plane west, but was in the central zone. My collector only allowed me to shoot in west as it was only setup to shoot in that zone. I now have it setup to shoot in central but I have taken over 4000 shots of this project in Missouri west zone.

"I have some time here in the office to see if I can change the zone in Carlson to central. I looked in the software before but was unable to figure out what I needed to do to change all of the shots. Thanks, Brent Richards"

"I run Trimble and it as easy as changing the job properties. You should be able to do the same thing in Carlson. Lucky for you, Carlson is the “friendliest” software for a new guy to learn on. Great-Great software. I’m bummed it…"

"It seems that the biggest problem is that after I calculated a projection off the NGS benchmark, I converted all the shots but in MicroStation, the shots tend to rotate to the North. I have only used that NGS benchmark as my reference, but I have 5…"
