      Transfer field definitions

      Your post

      Hello,

       

      I am using FM v 10 Advanced on a Windows Vista platform.

       

      I have two similar databases each with  only one table (the tables in each database have the same name).  I would like to transfer field definitions created in database 1 to database 2.

       

      Thus far I have had no luck.  Any ideas?

       

      Thanks.

          If you want to bring over the entire table as a separate table, you can use Import Records and Import to a new table.

           

          If you want to add field definitions from one table to an existing table:

           

          Open Manage | Database | Fields

          Select the field or fields you want (You can use the shift and control keys to select multiple field definitions.)

          Click the Copy button in the lower right corner

          Switch to the file/table want and, using Manage | Database | Fields, click Paste.
