    Default RE: Copying forms


    You need to copy th database dictionaries (.ddd, .ddm, .ddx for databases or .sem, .set, .sex for sets). The dictionaries contain all of the forms, browses, reports, etc for a particular databas or set. If you only want to bring over 1 form, I would suggest you go to the code archive and get the a5borrow routine. It will copy a single report, form, etc from one database or set to another. If they are on separate machines, then you need to somehow network them and map a drive to enable the borow from one machine to the other.

    If you need to copy the whole database (records, indexes, and dictionaries), then copy these files: filename.dbf, filename.ddd, filename.ddm, filename.ddx

    Let me know how you made out.
