Merge two databases

OCCURRENCE

ARB_INTRO/MERGE TWO ARB DATABASES

ARB_NT/File/Import/Merge from other ARB database

ARB_NT/File/Export/Merge to (new) ARB database

 

DESCRIPTION

Allows to merge two databases.

Complete 'ARB' databases, selected 'species', 'fields' and/or 'field' entries, 'SAI' entries and trees (see ´Glossary´) can be transferred from the source database to the target database.

Depending on how ARB_MERGE is started, you may be prompted for the source and/or target database.

The source database (DB) has to exist, the target DB may exist. If the target DB does not exist, a new database will be created.

 

NOTES

ARB databases stored in any directory with read and write permission can be chosen for merging.

 

STARTUP It's also possible to specify both database on the command

line by typing

arb yourSourceDB.arb yourTargetDB.arb
 

WARNINGS

If there are entries (for selected data) in both databases, those in the target DB will be overwritten!
