Importing an existing database
I have a database of swimmers times which I update in Access. Can I import this into baseportal and reupdate it so that I still have a copy on my PC and can update off line?

Exporting into Microsoft Access
could someone tell me if it is possible to import content of the baseportal database into Microsoft Access?
I have tried by going to database/management/export and converting the file into .txt format. However, this does not work - most of the time I am getting an empty file. Even if I manage to get something there I still have to import the file into Access. Is there a better/more efficient way of doing this? Is it possible to get the information from the baseportal database directly into Microsoft Access Database?

Re: Exporting into Microsoft Access
I tried it right now and it works - did you changed any of the popups and checkboxes at Database/Management/Export? Normally baseportal gives you a CSV formatted file which ACCESS imports without further changes - you just have to open the file in ACCESS...
If you still have problems: We have an expert for this topic (Sander) but he's snowboarding right now ;-) He will be back next week and could possibly help you...

Re: Importing an existing database
Sure, you can edit your data offline with Access (or whatever program you like which exports CSV), export the data as CSV and import it into baseportal whenever you want to update...
