Re: Merging 2011 Premium

Assuming you are referring to having 2 databases, each on seperate computers, you can import/export (merge) them as long as the installed versions are the same (yes, serial numbers can be different).

 

If you are importing (merging) databases, I would recommend backing up one of the databases and restoring it on the other computer - so that both databases are on the same computer.  Then perform the import.  This would remove any issues that might be encountered due to the need of a network connection between 2 computers.

Thank you Greg.  If I export the data from one computer onto a flash drive, I will not lose the database -- will I?  Also, can I export excluding activities?

 

Once the export/import is completed on both computers can I share/synchronize although diff serial numbers
