    Reusing a Database



      Reusing a Database


           I have an existing database that is set up quite well and I'd like to reuse it for a new project.  The "save a copy as" under File is not an option.  How else can I copy my database for use on my new project?

               Pull the database down off the server or open a backup copy of it. (you should set up your system to create and keep many back up copies of your database.)

               Now you can select Save A Copy As with the Clone option to get a copy of your file that is empty of data.

               Be careful to keep in mind that this also empties out all values in global fields and it is not unusual for something to "break" when you have no records in your database tables due to adding a feature that fails to work as expected when a table is empty of records.
