Restoring Database using Restore Database Command
In case of computer failure, corruption or if you made a mistake and would like to revert back to a previous database, the Restore Database command will open any previous backups you have saved. You must have a Database created before you can restore a backup.
- Click on the Tools menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen and select Restore Database.
- A Look in screen for Windows or Restore Database screen for Macintosh opens. Browse to the location of the Backup Database file.
- Select the file and click Open.
Important: Restoring a database file will overwrite the existing .db file. Restoring a database file is used in cases of the current file becoming damaged or information being entered incorrectly into the current database. Restoring from a previous database is faster than manually updating the incorrect information.
