How to transfer data using Copy and Paste functionality

Moving data from one table to another or from one database to another in BaseNow is as simple as working with text in any text editor like Notepad, Wordpad, Word, etc. All you need to transfer the records from a table into the destination database or table of your choice is the standard Copy + Paste procedure using CTRL+C and CTRL+V shortcuts on the keyboard. Just like in any text-processing program. The procedure consists of three steps:

1. select the records in the table that you want to copy and press CTRL+C

2. select the table to which you want to transfer the data. The table can be in the same database or in some other database with different format.

3. press CTRL+V on the keyboard to move the data.

The program will then analyze the source and destination tables and if the column names and types do not match, it will allow you to set the columns to which you want to transfer the data. In case you skip this step, the program will automatically create the missing columns in the destination table and copy the data.

The video demonstrates how the data from the ‘Northwind’ SQL Server database are copied into the Access 2000 test database.
