Copying Documents from One Database to another?

Jaziar asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
database 1 has created documents in it.  All the documents where created from a form named "Request Form".
database 2 has a form named "Main Topic".  I am wanting to use database 2, but I need to get the documents from database 1.  Both forms on the seperate databases share the same fields, but have differnt names.

Here are some thoughts i have

1.  Write a agent in database 2 that will go to database 1 and get all the documents and somehow change the name of the form they were created in?

2.  Copy over the Request Form and then copy over all the documents (cut and paste) add the form to the select statment in the views?

3. ??
