Advanced settings

Every tool in the program has additional settings independent of those necessary for its operation. After you start a tool, it is possible to create a backup table with the data from the original table and to save each step of the tool execution into a text file.

You can define the maximum number of errors after which the program will stop the execution and indicate whether to save the description of all errors into a text file.

The program can save all the settings in a file that you can later open and use as a package. Thus saved packages can be subsequently executed using BaseNow Agent.


The backup option allows you to store all the data from a table into a backup table before the program starts execution. Thus, you can save the data in case they are improperly processed due to incorrectly entered data. If the data are deleted or incorrectly modified, they can easily be sent back to the original table using certain possibilities of the program. For more information, see Move and copy records to another table.

Create backup copy of the table

Sets the value indicating whether to create backup copy of the table before performing any action.

Backup table name

Allows you to enter the name of a backup table. The program automatically adds _Backup extension to the original table name when you activate the backup option. You can enter the name of your choice.


The logging option saves every step in tool execution. Every tool in BaseNow has a built-in functionality that saves the description of every action into a text file during its execution. The logging option gives you a complete insight into everything the tool did during execution. This option can be of use in case the execution goes wrong.

Log execution

Sets the value indicating whether to log all actions to the text file.

Log file location

Sets the location of the log file.

Error Handling

The error handling functionality that is built in every database tool allows you to set the number of errors after which the program will stop execution of a task. This is useful when you are sure that some errors will be generated during execution due to the structure of data in the table or for some other reason. For example, the program can generate errors when manipulating null values in columns. In that case, the program can ignore them and continue processing other data in the table.

Maximum number of errors

Sets the number of errors after which the program will stop execution of the package.

Log errors

Sets the value indicating whether to log all errors to the text file.

Log file location

Sets the location of the log file.


Tools in BaseNow have a built-in possibility to save all settings into a binary file as a package. Thus, you can avoid entering the same information several times. You can use the BaseNow Agent to schedule the execution of every package in precisely defined time intervals.

For more information about the scheduling options, see Schedule package for later execution.

Package name

Sets the name of the package.

Package file location

Sets the location of the package file.


Sets the value indicating whether to schedule package execution.

Schedule execution

Sets the properties required to schedule the package.
