Merge Databases

Postby schnaeutz » Thu Aug 31, 2017 3:50 pm

I want to attach one Database to another. Both are of the same structure. I could not find a possibility for this in the menu. I can import an file, but not of the type pdb. I need help.

Hi there,

Thanks for your post. The best way to get data from one database to another on the Mac Desktop is to use the export to CSV and then import from CSV. There isn't a direct import of PDB files, as you surmised, but the above should work fine also.

A better way to accomplish this would be on the mobile devices where we have a Copy Records To... option. You can go to the source database and make sure all records you want to merge into the destination are visible. Then choose the Copy Records To option and select the destination database. All the records will be added to the destination and you're all set to go!

Sorry we don't have that feature on Mac at this time.
