It is available
to accept files into Database Tour database directly from Windows Explorer. Just
select needed files in Windows Explorer and drag them to table list window in
of the dragging process depends on the type of dragged files and on current Database
Tour status. The following cases are possible:
any files into the open local database (physical folder, for example, with DB
or DBF files), opened via BDE, or non-database into the
local database, opened via ADO. Result:
all dragged files will be physically copied to this folder.
files of DB, DBF, TXT, CSV, ASC, TAB, Lotus files or XML (the last five ones for
ADO connections only, XML data must match specific ADO schema) type into the open
SQL-based database (for example, Interbase) or into the local database, opened
via ADO. Result:
the dragged files will be imported as new tables into the current database.|
files when there are no open databases in Database Tour. In this case Database
Tour will accept all the file types, which can be opened by it (for example, DBF,
DTT, XLS, MDB, UDL), and physical folders. Result:
the first file (folder) of the dragged files will be opened like it was done from
Database | Open... menu, and other files will be ignored.|
When dragging DB, DBF, CSV and files of some other types to local database, please
verify that all related files (index files, schemas, BLOBs etc.) are also dragged.
Because of you can drag into the table list window only, before dragging, please
verify that table list is visible and the corresponding page of Object
