Importing and Exporting Data Source Settings and Application Settings Jet 10.x and higher


The following article is for Jet Professional and Jet Essentials

If you are setting up many workstations with the same Data Source and/or Application settings, you may want to set up the first workstation, then export these settings and import them to all other workstations.  You can also use the Export feature as a way to back up these settings.

Exporting Data Source Settings:

Step Action
1 Open the Data Source Settings
2 In some early versions, select File | Export.  In later versions, click the Export button and then choose "Data Sources..."
3 Select which  Data Sources you want to export and press OK
4 Choose a name and location for the exported .xml file
5 Click "Save"


 

Importing Data Source Settings:

Step Action
1 Open the Data Source Settings and select File | Import
2 In some early versions, select File | Import.  In later versions, click the Import button and choose "Data Sources..."
3 Browse to the exported .xml file that you saved and select "Open"
4 Select which Data Sources you want to import
5 Select OK

 

Exporting Application Settings:

Step Action
1 Open the Application Settings and select "Export..." at the bottom of the form
2 Choose a name and location for the exported .xml file
3 Click "Save"

 

Importing Application Settings:

Step Action
1 Open the Application Settings and select "Import..." at the bottom of the form
2 Browse to the exported .xml file that you saved
3 Select "Open"

 

Note:

Data source settings are stored in the datasources.xml file found in the user's roaming profile folder.

You can find that file by opening Windows Explorer, typing %appdata% in the address bar and pressing enter. 

This will take you to your roaming profile folder C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\
