This section describes how to extract a database for a remote user from the current consolidated database. This section applies only to SQL Anywhere consolidated databases.
When you complete the Extract Database wizard, it does the following on your machine:
Creates the remote database
Extracts (unloads) the relevant structures and/or data from the consolidated database to files
Loads those files into the newly created remote database
From the Tools menu, choose SQL Anywhere 10 > Extract Database.
Follow the instructions in the wizard.
You can also access this wizard by clicking Tools > SQL Anywhere 10 > Extract Database.
You can also invoke the extraction wizard for a particular database or for a particular remote user—Sybase Central automatically fills in the appropriate entries in the wizard.
The extraction wizard always extracts (synchronizes) the remote database using the WITH SYNCHRONIZATION option. In those rare cases where you don't want to use this option, you must use the dbxtract utility instead.
Only tables for users selected in the Filter Objects by Owner dialog appear in the Extract Database wizard. If you want to view tables belonging to a particular database user, right-click the database you are unloading, choose Filter Objects by Owner from the popup menu, and then select the desired user in the resulting dialog.
