Copying a part of the database

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I'm not sure I'm posting in the right section, so forgive me if I'm wrong.

I need to send a part of the databese to a client but don't want to let him see the information concerning other clients. I have tried to export the files after a search to another file but It only sends the principle table of my database and no layouts. Does anyone have an idea about how to do that?

Thanks in advance

Create a clone of your database file(s), then import only found sets for that client. This will require multiple import steps, one from each table. It can all be scripted.

You would also be sending him the structure of your file(s). So that's something to consider. At the least you'd want to password-protect Full Access, so he can't make a mess of things easily.

If I was doing such a thing I would want to try and make that export file one file, with multiple tables. It's just cleaner that way. (Consider doing that for the real database :-).

But at this point you have to consider whether you couldn't instead manage to produce a layout that had all of the info, then either print or Save as PDF.

So, several options. All of them require some work.
