Creating Skeleton copy of existing database

0 Likes

Problem:

I would like to create a skelton copy of an existing database, but would like the new database to be smaller in size and contain no previous data. I have deleted all the info in a copy of the database, however the size remains the same.

Resolution:

The following solution will create a carbon copy of the existing databsae without data and the size will be considerably smaller.

Solution:

1. Create new database through the Database Administration Utility

2. Log into original database

3. Go to Admin>Export>Type Descriptions

4. Save .tdtfile to the Desktop

5. Log into the New database

6. Go to Admin.Import>Type Description
