You can use the Transfer Entries option to create a new file. To do this:
Here is an example of using the Transfer File Entries option to create a new file:
INPUT TO WHAT FILE: SCHOLAR COPY Are you adding 'SCHOLAR COPY' as a new FILE? No// Y (Yes) FILE NUMBER: 16031// INTERNAL GLOBAL REFERENCE: ^DIZ(16031,// ...SORRY, I'M WORKING AS FAST AS I CAN... A FreeText NAME Field (#.01) has been created. TRANSFER FROM FILE: SCHOLAR DO YOU WANT TO TRANSFER THE 'SCHOLAR' DATA DICTIONARY INTO YOUR NEW FILE? YES
NOTE: You are asked the global reference question only if you have programmer access.
Answering YES copies (or "clones") the data definitions of the old file. Then, if the old file has had any templates created, you will be asked:
DO YOU WANT TO COPY 'SCHOLAR' TEMPLATES INTO YOUR NEW FILE?
Once you have created a new file with identical field and template descriptions, you can transfer entries into it. This is a method of copying a file.
