Restoring the Sample Database
Restoring the Sample Database
The GMO installation provides not only a Microsoft Access database file,
green2.mdb, but also a back-up copy of that file, called green2-base.mdb.
The text database file, green2.txt, also has a back-up copy, called
green2.base.txt. These copies allow you to experiment with the database and
still have a copy of the original information to restore.
1
Navigate to the GMO installation directory
Using the Windows Explorer navigate to the <GMO installation
directory
> (The default directory location is C:\Program
Files\Borland\SilkTest\Gmo).
2
Delete the file for the database that you want to restore
If you were using the text database (the default) delete green2.txt.
If you specified that GMO should use the Access database, delete
green2.mdb.
3
Create a copy of the back-up copy of the database
If you were using the text database, right-click green2-base.txt.
Select Copy. With the <GMO installation directory> still open in the
Explorer, right-click and select Paste. A copy of the file is placed in
the GMO directory.
If you were using the Access database, right-click green2-
base.mdb
. Select Copy. With the <GMO installation directory> still
open in the Explorer, right-click and select Paste. A copy of the file
is placed in the GMO directory.
4
Rename the copy of the back-up database
If you were using the text database (the default), right-click copy of
green2-base.txt, select Rename. Rename the file green2.txt.
If you were using the Access database, right-click copy of green2-
base.mdb
, select Rename. Rename the file green2.mdb.
