What is the best practice over import.

I recently ran into a stupid problems after an import on a (silent) open file

(it's for updating, migration)


The solution was close with a found set in a table - did knew FM was preserving states, but it makes sense.


But it is not quit explain in the import script steps that it only import found sets...

In the FM help Doc, it is said that "close" files gets full import, but not open ones...


Anyway, what is the best way to update a solution with a clone.

     • openning the bkp, performing find all and sorting on all table

     • closing or how do I switch solution - they have the same names !!

     • going back in my clone, activating table/model

          • doing that import

          • openning (silent) the bkp file for serial upadating


Do I miss something here

What is your patern on that, tx

Have a greet Super Ball !!!
