TRANSFERRING DATA BETWEEN BASLOGUE EDITIONS

The Standalone Edition of Baslogue uses the same Backup File format as the Data Import/Export feature within the Database Edition of Baslogue.  This allows data to be easily transferred between the two editions.  This means, for example, that you can evaluate Baslogue using the Standalone Edition, and then later transfer your data to the Database Edition.  It also means that you can easily transfer data between different databases - for example, transfer from a Microsoft SQL Server database to a MySQL database, or vice versa.


Transferring Data from the Standalone Edition to the Database Edition

Launch the Standalone Edition.  Select the Setup | Backup and Restore menu option:
 


Now specify a File Name for the Backup File that you will create:
 
 



Click "Create Backup" to create the backup file.

Now install the Database Edition of Baslogue if you have not already done so.  Complete the first-time setup as prompted on a new database.  When you get to the main screen select the Import Data from File option.  Select the backup file you created above.
 
  



Click "Next >" to import the data, and you are finished - the data has been transferred.



Transferring Data from the Database Edition to the Standalone Edition

Launch the Baslogue Administration Wizard.  From the main screen, select the Export Data to File option.  Specify a Backup File Name that you would like to create.
 


Click "Next >" to export the data.

Now install the Standalone Edition of Baslogue if you have not already done so.  Complete the first-time setup as prompted. 

Select the Setup | Backup and Restore menu option:
 


Now select the backup file you created above in the "Restore from Backup File" section:
 
 



 
Click "Restore from Backup" to restore the backup file.  Then close the dialog and restart the application as prompted and you are finished.
