Click this tab to perform various database maintenance chores.
Select the database you wish to maintain, then click one of the active command buttons:
Backup db tab
Click this tab to backup your database tables into a compressed archive.
Restore db tab
Click this tab to restore archived database tables.
Backup and restore are powerful tools which will allow you to create archives of your data. For example, you could periodically create an archive of your data which would allow you to purge your database while retaining access to older data.
This is a special "Read only" file which contains an archive of all the empty database tables. This provides an easy means to start again with a clean slate.
Because this function is so powerful, it is password protected. Please note: the program ships without a password. The first time you access this function it will ask for a password. Thereafter, this will be the password required to access the edit drug models and database maintenance functions, so choose one that you can easily remember. Contact the author if you should lose or forget your password.
