Importing a record(s) from one database to another one.

Post

Hello. Need to know if this is the best way to import select records from one database (let's call DB-1) to another (DB-2) or if there is a better way to do so. What I'm doing now, is I find the records in the one database (DB-1) I want to export into another one (DB-2) and then, I go to the second database (DB-2) (where I want these records to be copied to), is where I do the importing. I'm using the store number (unique ID for the databases) here to match, but if the DB-2 database updated any other information that I'm bringing in, this way will override any changes, but I still want to bring all this information in for the one new record that needs to go into DB-2. Somehow I believe there is a better way to do this, but not sure how, unless I export to Excel and import that document with just the one record of information. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
