Export and import configuration

SQL DataTool allows you to transport the configuration to a different system. The following data can be exported and imported using the configuration export and import functionality:

  • Export location (e.g. a network share)
  • Import batch records
  • Database server locations
  • Database

To export the configuration, open the configuration screen by clicking on the 'configure' button in the ribbon menu.

This option is added to the SQL DataTool to share your database connections with other users of SQL DataTool. But it also allows you to easily share a joint network location where you can share your other export files, like data models.

The default name of the configuration export file is 'configuration.sdf' and is exported to the export location in the general tab in the Configuration.
