Import a whole database in an existing one

Postby graszanger on Sat Oct 29, 2011 8:45 pm

Is it possible to import a whole database in an existing database ?
I have Remembird since November 2006. So, I have already a relatively large database made with Remembird I.
I can import the visits of each day into the new one of Remembird II, but it would be easier if I could import the whole database in the new one.

a) If you've upgraded a RememBird I system with the new software, the database is retained and will still have all your previous recordings in it.

b) If you've not started filling your RememBird II database yet, you can simply copy across the old one.

Use File > Backup Database to make a copy of the RememBird I database then File > Restore Database on the RememBird II installation.

c) If you've already started putting some recordings into a new RememBird II database, you can backup that one; restore the RememBird I database and import (the relatively few) visits from your newer RememBird II database.

Hope that helps
