Merging Databases
Is the database format such that a person could manually edit the files to merge two databases?
I have a huge file from one person and I want to merge with my own database without having to import each and every tune all over again and setting up all the information on genres, keys, collections etc etc.
I am no stranger to hacking together files and databases, so if there is a way to edit some sort of structure or index file, that would be great to know.


If you are really skilled with SQL, you could find a way to merge the two databases. It's not going to be easy though - there are a lot of tables that you would have to create entries under and link together. How comfortable are you with SQL?

On a side note, I'm wondering how useful it would be to users to have a "Merge Backup File" feature instead of just a restore library backup feature. It would be incredibly complex to implement in comparison to the regular restore, but I can look into doing it at some point if it would be useful to a large number of users.

The closest I get to SQL would be that I use Access quite a bit, so I guess I could possibly create queries that ultimately link the databases together. Can you tell me where to find the actual databases?
Also, yes, a merge backup file would be good. I work with a lot of different musicians, and we share music, so no one person has the exact database that another person has, so merging would sort of solve the problem.


Just a word of caution, I think 'database' and 'library' are not the same in thing in MobileSheets.

With the ability to send songs now with MSPro, is this needed in the new version? I sent multiple songs to myself from one tablet to another and it worked great.
