ColorChecker Passport and Camera profiles in Lightroom 4 Help!!!

Hi, Need some help please.
I have been trying to use my CCP to make camera profiles in L/R 4 but every time I try to put in a new profile for the same camera i am getting the message "The following file already exists, do you wish to overwrite this file" it gives me no option to rename or for that matter even give the file a name in the first place.
I right click the thumbnail and choose the option Export_ColorChecker Passport, or go to File_ Export with preset_ColorChecker Passport
Thank for any and all help

When you do File>Export.....

the following dialogue box should appear where you enter the name of the profile.


Then when you have restarted Lightroom under Develop> Camera Calibration choose the profile you want.
As you can see I use the date created as part of the name and sometimes the location as well.

Hi, Thanks.
But this is what I do not get the option to do "Enter profile name" and I don't no why.
Thanks again

I have also produced profiles for Lightroom/PS. Though I used a Color Checker Passport to take the necessary shots, I used Adobe Labs DNG Profile Editor to create the profiles. The Adobe Labs software can be downloaded for free and at least one review (Northlight Images, I think) indicates that the Adobe software is better and more accurate than the X Rite software. You will need to look at the Adobe Labs H/B as well. You can also produce a profile for a converted Infra Red camera as well using this software.
