Subject Creating database through a script and later updating it
Author Venus Software Operations
Hi all

For eg. I have created a FireBird database on the development machine. Now
I want to deploy it for the first time to a client machine. How is it
possible to recreate the database by a junior support tech person on the
clients machine.

For eg. 2 Now I have modified the data structures on the development
machine. Now I want to change the structures on the clients
machine. Please note there are no formal changes track record, so I just
have to have the current data structures and apply a script at the clients
site onto the existing FireBird database and it should come upto speed
without loosing the data.

I come from the VFP community and I have written small PRGs to tackle these
situations successfully, but how do I do it for FireBird.

Thanking you.

Yours Faithfully,
For Venus Software Operations
