Moving documents between databases


Is it still ok to drag files between databases? I looked back on this forum to 2005 and it seems to have never been an issue. I want to make a new DB and drag files to it. Is there a better way? Any issues I may encounter?



There should be no problem with this (as drag and drop is a very Mac-centric thing to do).
You could also right-click and choose Move.
Or you could use File > Export > Files and Folders with a selection in the source database, then File > Import > Files and Folders to the new database.

One caveat: Make sure the files you are dragging and dropping are NOT missing indexed files (and you should always be doing periodic checks to make sure your databases are healthy. See Tuesday tip: Routine maintenance for your database.)

Thanks Jim

No problem. :smiley:
