Import database

The import database function will import a database backup file in "" format previously created by the export database function.

The function has to operating modes:

In all data mode it will import all information (i.e. all dancer, configuration and tip data) contained in the backup file. This will usually fail if your database is not empty. Therefore it is recommended to drop and create your database first (but be aware that you will loose all unsaved changes made to your database!) This operation will completely recreate a previous program state. Be aware of the fact that you might need to reset tip and dancer states before you can use the program again.

In only new dancers mode the program will only import new dancer records from the file. "New dancers" are ones that have a barcode number that is not yet present in the database. This function is useful for sharing dancer data between clubs.
