Move table from one computer to another

Move table from one computer to another

Move table from one computer to another

I have a table that I would like to copy across the network using a PRG.

Thanks for the help.


RE: Move table from one computer to another

Are you copying entire tables, or some/all records from an open table?


* File copy of a table/file (must be closed)
* dBase 5 for DOS handles only DOS 8.3 files - no spaces in folder names
SrceFile = "C:\myProd\myTable.dbf"
DestFile = "D:\myArch\myTable.dbf"
COPY FILE (SrceFile) TO (DestFile)


* DOS/CLI file copy of a table/file (must be closed)
SrceFile = "C:\myProd\myTable.dbf"
DestFile = "D:\myArch\myTable.dbf"
RUN COPY &SrceFile &DestFile
Note that UNC paths such as "\\ComputerName\ShareName\" can be substituted for the mapped drive letter designations such as "C:\" above.
