    Default Import Report definitions from QRW 7 to 8

    I think I have to Export these report definitions from V7 to be able to import them into V8. V8 comes with a way to Import and/or Export report definitions, but V7 only seems to be able to export data. Do I have to backup and restore the whole database from 7 to 8? I have sent my reports to Brad before but it has been a while and I am not sure if this is the same procedure. I am stuck at this point - any help would be appreciated.

    The reports are tied to the tables and sets, so all you have to do is copy your tables and sets from v7 to v8 and all should work.

    Copy the folder named -

    Code:
     
    C:\Program Files\QReportBuilderv7\Data
     
    to
     
    C:\Documents and Settings\<YOURUSERNAME>\My Documents\QReportBuilderData
    replace <YOURUSERNAME> with the user that your computer is using.

    rename the data folder in the new location to DATA_V7.qrb

    You'll then be able to open your QRB version 7 data and reports in QRB version 8 as a project named DATA_V7



    Melvin - While QRB is essentially the same as Alpha 5 v7 & 8 there are a couple of differences and helpers with data locations....
    Data location is chosen and the database has a master password that con be turned on and off by 'sharing and unsharing the "project" '
