Title

Copy of a database file

Post

     Hello,

     is it possible to make a copy of a database file from a script in another database? And is it possible also to fill the fields of the new database with values of the current database?

     I will explain. I have a propietary database, and a small template database for exportation purposes that I want to send to the client (the same as a report, but in a FileMaker file).

     The process then can be:

     1. copy the template file to the exportation file.

     2. fill the exportation file with data from the propietary db.

     I've been taking a look on the script commands that manage files, but i have not found yet the way to do this from a script. Have you any suggestions?

     Thanks.
