I have old database on Emonitor 4
I need to creat new data with new name
I made the following
1-Creat new database"name it "services"
2-skip config because already configured with old data
3-go to security - new login to create user with the same name: "services"
4-skip creation script
5-import initial database from import/export utility
For "Services"
6-File menu :import data
But the file name avaliable is not " service" file
It is old data file

What is my mistake in this procedure
Can anybody help me please

Did you name the new folder that your database is located in "Services" also?

Hey elephant, what's difficult about naming your database and the folder the same name?
Using common database such as SQL allows a whole lot of external functionality aside from the vibration software. He's probably already solved his problem, I didn't see how old it was till I had already answered.

Dave an John,

I really don't know much about database programs but I'm learning to appreciate the power of a genuine database program like Emonitor or @ptitude as opposed to a structured database program like RBMWare. In my simplistic understanding, in RBMWare the database is running in the background and the user is pretty much constrained to the various utilities and functions built into the system.  CSI did a fine job in the functions built into PlotData and I would imagine that their new VA module has been fully developed into a fine interface. But in SQL-based programs, if you don't like what's pre-defined, you have the option of assessing the data just about however you want. I'm just a little short on how to go about some of those things, but I'm learning.

Unfortunately, the freedom that you have when everything is just a value in a row and column can also make it hard to understand exactly what's going to happen when you hit enter. [wink]

I agree with you there Danny the sql basis makes it so much easier. I’ve never used csi but all the ap sets and dB utility speak gives me the Heebee jeebees.

That and the presentation still looks cheap considering the price.
Always wrecks my head that CSI screen presentation looks so basic
