Hi SankarV
you can use a TransferDatabase Method.
Syntax below:
TransferDatabase(TransferType, DatabaseType, DatabaseName, ObjectType, Source, Destination, StructureOnly, StoreLogin)
TransferType  Optional AcDataTransferType.

AcDataTransferType can be one of these AcDataTransferType constants.
acImport default
If you leave this argument blank, the default constant (acImport) is assumed.

Note   The acLink transfer type is not supported for
