Exporting data to new phone

Postby rainmon1 » Fri Jul 21, 2017 5:29 pm

How can I export my records from HB on my old phone to HB on my new phone? Do I need HB Desktop to do this, or can I connect the phones by cable as i did to transfer apps? Do I need to create the file structure, or will that happen when the records are copied over?

Thanks for posting.

You don't need the desktop software, though it does make things a little easier.

Depending on the phone types, you probably won't be able to connect them via USB.

Your best option will be to manually email each of the databases from HanDBase on the old phone to yourself.

Then on the new phone, with HanDBase already installed, open each email and tap on the database. Choose to open in HanDBase.

Each time you will find that the database is accepted into HanDBase.
Kind Regards,
