The articles in this section of the Knowledge Base involve importing and exporting from the Database Management window. For general information regarding the Database Management tool, or how to access it, see Database Management Utilities (Overview).
This simplified article provides a brief tutorial for exporting Work Orders using the Database Management Utility.

Select the Work Orders tab > select the Work Order(s) to be exported > accept the file to be exported to or browse for a different location.
When exporting Processing Stations, the following Additional Options are available:
Once everything has been selected for export, and any desired additional options included, select Transfer.
When the file being exported to is empty, or lacking a MicrovellumFactory.sdf database, a database is automatically created with the exported data inside. When the file being exported to already has a MicrovellumFactory.sdf database, and this database features duplicate information, the Resolve Duplicate Names window appears. When there is no duplicate information, the data being exported is appended to the database.
There are three options to resolve duplicate names:
A MicrovellumFactory.sdf database file is created containing the work orders exported and various other tables of data. A folder is also created for each work order being exported within the folder selected containing the batches, nest drawings, G-Code files, DXF files, and individual work order databases.
