|Adding an Existing Data Dictionary to a Project|
The best way to do this is to rename the meta data files (REPMETA.DBF, REPMETA.CDX, and REPMETA.FPT) in the first project directory to something applicable (such as ACCTMETA.DBF, CDX, and FPT) and copy them into the second project directory. Then, edit the SFQUERY.INI file to specify the additional meta data file:
[Meta Data] file1=repmeta.dbf file2=acctmeta.dbf
After adding the data dictionary files to the project, create relations between the appropriate tables in the different databases so Stonefield Query knows how to join them.
You may also wish to add existing scripts to the project as well.
Note that the last file listed is the one written to by Stonefield Query Studio. This means new fields and tables are added to that file only, and even changes to fields and tables that exist in other files are written to the last file instead. This allows someone to make changes in Stonefield Query Studio and not have those changes overwritten when a new copy of the other data dictionary tables is released.
