Importing Data (ppt - 256K) Importing Data (ppt - 256K) Presentation Transcript

  • Sheila Smith Armor ASAT Program Manager Excellence in Training, Doctrine, and Combat Development
  • Preventing Global Lock Outs
    • Two Types of global lock outs
    • 1. Every local user in your database is inactive.
    • 2. Your database takes on another schools identity.
    • What causes these global lock outs?
      • Directly importing information from another school into our working database– the sharing of information.
    • The Armor School prevents global lock out by:
      • Never importing directly into the working database.
      • Removing all users except the ASAT System Administrator and the Reviewer from the transfer database prior to importing the information into our working database.
  • School Identity Theft
    • The Armor School utilized Infomaker to recover our identity; change the school codes back to Armor.
  • School Identity Theft continued Sample of the Armor Schools database site id information from Infomaker   0     N     71 171 N 180     Y 3/29/2005 4.44 17 171 req chg history text cd pswd chg period last month-ly dt last daily dt remote database version dt version product propon-ent school
  • School Identity Theft
    • Or you can use the “isql.exe” method. However, my recommendation for a lock out that is associated with school identity theft is to contact:
    • ATSC ASAT Manager, Elaine Tarr
    • ( 757) 878- 4762, Ext 7044 DSN: 826- 4762, Ext 7044 FAX: (757) 878-4140 [email_address]
  • Armor School Import Steps
    • Take the transfer database (from another school or contractor) that was created using the steps Elaine presented earlier, and connect to it to review the data.
    • Since ASAT defaults to your working database, to connect to your transfer database on the power panel select File, attach to other databases. In my example below, I have created a “TOMA” profile.
  • Armor School Import Steps continued
    • Logon to the transfer database as the Administrator (use id: admin and password: asat).
    • When prompted to change the password, change the password.
    • Select “System Admin” on the ASAT Power Panel. Select “ASAT User Administration”.
    • Filter by clicking “All”. This will bring up the ASAT User Maintenance Screen with every user
    • At the User Maintenance Screen, remove all users except the ASAT System Administrator and Reviewer by:
    • -- From the file menu, select data then “select/deselect record” (the record will turn blue when selected). Then select data delete record. You can delete several records at a time by holding the shift key and clicking on records.
    Armor School Import Steps continued

  • Benefits of utilizing a transfer database
    • It prevents your active users from becoming inactive (locked out)
    • It prevents your working database from taking on another schools identity/school codes. NOTE: If your database takes on another school’s identity every user including your administrators and any administrative back doors will be disabled.
    • If the information you are importing is corrupt you will not corrupt your active database.
  • Benefits of utilizing a transfer database
    • You are able to choose specific items you want to import into your working database.
    • You are able to remove outdated facilities, products, TADSS, and other items that appear under the support tab.
