Metamorphosis Demo -

When distributing a new app version to existing clients you may have a need to migrate existing data into a new Back-End database. I use Metamorphosis to do this. Its a class module that migrates data from a user selected database file. You can define table and field mappings in code or you can have Metamorphosis prompt for an XML file. This allows you to provide custom table/field mapping definitions to clients who have custom database schemas. This demo includes four examples of moving data from a legacy back-end. It includes four sample XML data mapping files and exhibits several useful features like the use of SQL as a source or destination, the LITERAL feature for assigning a literal value to a new field and the TRANSFORM feature that runs custom code for fields during the data migration.

A very handy tool for updating existing Microsoft Access back-end .mdb or .accdb database files for existing installations.
