    Default How do I move the data from a set in Alpha 4 to Alpha 5

    We have Alpha 4-V6. On it we have 4 databases and one set. The set can pull data from two of the 4 databases. The set also has the largest number of records in it - very important to our program.
    We were able to transfer our data from the 4 databases from our old computer with Alpha 4 on it to our new computer with Alpha 5 on it, but the Set did not transfer. Any direction as to how we can do that. Thanks, Tom Westmoreland

    You will need to re-define the set in Alpha Five. It's a bit of a misconception to think of "sets" as record containers. Sets don't hold records. The data is stored in the tables (i.e. the files that Alpha Four calls "databases").

    If you've never defined a set in Alpha Five take a few minutes and read up on sets in the Alpha Five user guide. It's in the Help system. Open help, choose "Contents" tab, and then open the User Guide.
