You can export a copy of the database structure to create a duplicate database or to create a new database template based off a current database. The structure is stored in a .dcb file and contains the original field names and their types. Data exported from a database can be loaded into another database that has been exported.
Before exporting a database structure, you can save the structure to a .txt file that you can print for your reference. The text file contains a list of all the database's fields and field types.
Keep the following in mind when exporting concatenated databases:
•Concordance exports data from all databases within a concatenated set only when the concatenated databases have identical database structures.
•When exporting from a concatenated set with different database structures, the contents from the secondary database gets exported only for the fields that match the primary database. The remaining field contents will not be exported.
