Exporting groups to master DB - will they sync to RDBs?

Hi - hoping I can get a confirmation on this. I recently merged 4 users' DBs into a master DB and created RDBs for two of them. The original DBs group data didn't merge, only the group names, and they now want their groups from the original DBs. I can export their groups only from the original DBs to the master DB, but I want to make sure if I do this that:

 

1. it won't mess up their RDBs when they sync, and

2. that the RDBs will pull the group info when they sync.

 

Can someone confirm whether this is safe to do and will push their groups to their RDBs? if not, is there a solution?

 

Thanks,

Tim

Any changes made to the main database will synchronize to the remotes.

You can test the results of the import before applying it to your main database by: create a copy of the main database (File > Save Copy As), then perform the import/export into the copy to view the results.

Note: Always create a backup of the database before performing an import (File > Backup > Database) or other major data changes.
