database has full importing and exporting capabilities.
These capabilities allow for configuration tables, full
projects, or individual audits to be "passed"
between OptoMizer databases. This "passing"
allows for full electronic communication and
synchronization between systems.
The importing and exporting capabilities also allow
for the electronic archiving of audits. Audits can be
exported into a single file and then stored on disk for
There are three types of import / export files that
can be generated by the system.
Configuration Tables: The Configuration
Tables export file contains all records in the
Lamps, Ballasts, Sockets, Reflector Kits, Hardware, Misc.
Hardware, Lens, Occupancy Controls, Fixtures, Fixture
Wattages, and Design ID Components tables. It also
includes all Design Luminaire and Budget Cost templates,
Cost Description Templates, Daily and Operating
Use of this export would be for synchronizing all
configuration tables within the target Slave
OptoMizer database with the Master OptoMizer
database. This export contains no project or audit
Complete Project: The Complete
Project export file includes all data related to
the selected project for BOTH the Model and Construction
audits (if applicable). This export also includes all
information included in the Configuration
Tables export type as described previously.
When a Complete Project export file is
imported into an OptoMizer database, the import procedure
will remove any project from the system bearing the same
project number as the one being imported. After which, a
full configuration tables update will occur, then the
entire project will be imported into the system.
Specific Project Audit The Specific
Project Audit export file includes all data related
to the selected project for ONLY the audit type selected.
This export also includes all information included in the
Configuration Tables export type as described
Unlike the Complete Project import, the
Specific Project Audit import only removes
the audit from the system bearing the same project number
as the one being imported. It will leave the other audit
intact for the project.
