  • how to test import from database

    ok i am very new here and im baffled with impex. the guide says to backup the source db and use it for a test import but i cant figure out what i need to put into the impexconfig file to get it to import from the backup.

    hopefully that doesnt sound too silly

    ps i have just loaded and got vb4.1 loaded and running

    After you backup the source db, you need to create a new database and import this backup into it. Then you would put the information for this newly imported backup database into the impexconfig file.
