      Clone Behavior

      Post

      Simple Question-

      When creating a clone copy of a database, do the entrires in global fields remain?

          Not with "save as a clone"

          It's often useful to set up a script that initializes all global fields with expected default values for each. You can then run this script after the save a clone operation in the new copy to set the desired values. This doesn't work if the global field is a container field in many cases.

          You can also save a regular copy of your database and then delete all records in the copy. This can take a while in large files with millions of records but your global field values can be retained this way.
