Copy a PervasiveSQL 9 Database

Copy a PervasiveSQL 9 Database

Copy a PervasiveSQL 9 Database

Is there a way to automatically generate, like in MS SQL, a script that will allows me to duplicate all the tables, index, view, etc.
If this is not possible, which way will be best to recreate similar tables or database onto another machine?
Thanks in advance.

RE: Copy a PervasiveSQL 9 Database

There is no way, with Pervasive tools, to create a script of the database.
If you are wanting to copy the entire database including the data, simply copy the files (all of the DDF files and the data files) to the new machine and recreate the DSN/Database Name.
If you want empty copies of the tables, you can do the same process then use BUTIL -CLONE to create empty versions of the data files (not the DDFs).  Rename the Clones to the original name and you've got an empty database.
