Import ALL records from one FM database to another, NOT just found set
Posted on 2005-04-14
I've been tasked with updating a solution developed in FM5.5 (staying in 5.5 for now).
I have developed an installer program (not in FM Pro) the customers will use
to put the new solution on their computer. Before installing the new FM files,
the installer makes a copy of all the database files to be imported into
their respective "new" files after the installation.
The problem I am having is when I call the Import script from the new database, it
only imports the current found set of the old database. Obviously, the customer may
have had any number of records in the found set (even zero) when they last exited
1) There is no script in the old database to "show all records".
2) The solution runs in kiosk mode, so I can't have the customer open
each DB and hit <ctrl J> (nor would I want to burden them)
