Send Set

Description

To email one or more components of a set as a ZIP file:

  1. Display the Table/Sets tab of the Control Panel.

  2. Select the table of interest, right click, and select Send... to display the Send Set dialog.

  3. On the Options tab optionally, clear Include Data Dictionary if you do not want to include Field Rules, Layouts, and Operations defined for the tables of the set.

  4. Optionally, clear Include Indexes, if you do not want to include indexes. Indexes can make a zip file signficantly larger. The indexes can be recreated without loss of information later.

  6. Optionally, display the Files tab to see which set components will be included in the zip file.

  7. Optionally, click Options to select your email client.

  8. Click Zip and Send Set to continue or click Cancel to quit without taking any action.
