I just bought a new phone and want to move my databases to it. I copied all the database files with the.pdb extensions to the Handbase directory, and they open, but the relationships are apparently lost.what is the correct way to handle this?

Hi,

Sounds like you may have missed the database with the related records. Double check to make sure it is there, as there is no reason the relationships should no t work.

I seem to have all the correct files. Does it matter in what order they are uploaded? I originally transferred then using Bluetooth pairing. I did find one I missed and used Google Drive to transfer it. The main form did not display any of the links to that file either.

I fixed the problem by loading the databases in sort of reverse order. I loaded the linked databases first and proceeded to the main database that is the main form. All the links then worked correctly.
