Import and Export the DDR by script so we can version control (and diff) our databases.
Import of DDR can be done using XSLT. And remember DDR is only an FMPAdvanced feature!
But we can not create a database by import of a DDR.
correct! is that what you asked for in this idea? if so, you may need to explain in more detail.
Automated export of DDR is possible by GUI scripting or by using MBS Plugin:
Monkeybread Software - MBS FileMaker Plugin: FM.RunDataDesignReport
For import you first need to make sure the DDR is complete. As far as I know some things are missing.
but of course it would be useful to apply a DDR to recreate a database of same structure.
