Import/Export Variables & Automation Rules

Postby jjjukebox » Mon Dec 28, 2009 11:45 am

I have searched the forum and cannot find any definitive solutions for this.

I want to transfer specific variables & automation rules between systems. I have tried this for variables:
1. Exported all my variables (TblVariables in Commands.mdb) from one system to an excel worksheet using Access.
2. Deleleted all unwanted variables from the Excel worksheet (leaving headings in tact)
3. Imported resulting Excel worksheet into TblVariables in Commands.mdb of another system using Get External Data function in Access

The result was that the variables were imported but alot of the existing variables in the second system disappeared. Not sure if the VariableId's were the same or if this matters.

It would be nice if we had the same setup for variable import/export that we have for command maps. Select variables, export, import into another system. Having this capability for Autmation rules would be really handy as well.
