RE: exporting a table pc


If you're not exporting to text, I'm thinking you want to export to tape?

If that is so, the dbexport command will export to tape, but it does the whole database.


RE: exporting a table pc

can I use SZ (send zmodem) command ? because my connection is via com1 port by an emulator, procom plus. if it is possible how can I use sz ?
and I tried ;

 $    dbexport mydatadb
-425 - Database is currently opened by another user.
107 - ISAM error:  record is locked.
and I received this error.
what is the meaning? when database is not opened by another user can I export mydata?

RE: exporting a table pc


I have no experience with your emulator so I can't really help you with that.

Unfortunately, Informix dbexport command does not allow any user to be logged into the database when performing a dbexport.
