Are you using FM Advanced? If so, you can use the 'Copy' function in the 'Define database' window, then paste it into your new solution.
(As far as I know you cannot 'import Tables', only the data from tables.)
Thanks for the reply. I am using Filemaker Pro 10. I'm having trouble finding the define database window. Can you give me some instruction of how to get there?
In FM9 you have to be using the Advanced version to get the 'Copy' feature - and I guess it will be the same in version 10.
To get to where the 'Copy' button will be, go to File -> Manage -> Database, and look at the Tables Tab. Bottom right will be a 'Copy' button, if you have FM10 Advanced.
howdy again ABWConstruction,
As you work through this merge of Dbases, think carefully about which direction to go.
1. Does it make more sense to try to import the PO Dbase into yours, or to import yours into the PO Dbase?
2. Is there an advantage to having them together at all? What linkages are you planning on? How will the linkages help you?
3. Is it more valuable to you to copy a dbase into your own, or to build in the table structure yourself and put in your own custom 'tweeks' that every business has need of?
All questions, few answers...sometimes I'm like that. I think combining the Dbases is good, but I would encourage you to replicate the PO Dbase on your own, from the ground up, so that you understand how to maintain it and how to "tweek" it to fit your custom needs. Just my two cents...
Oh, and you don't have to answer my questions here on the board...just make sure you answered them for yourself ;)
