So you have successfully connected DATPROF Subset to the Gasware Database. Now it is time to import the meta data from the database. Importing meta data will save the structure of your database in your template file. The tables, attributes, data types and foreign key relationships are imported using the Import meta data wizard. The actual data inside your database is not imported, only the structure of your data model!

You can import meta data from different schemas. The Gasware Database contains only one schema that we will import.  

  • Click the Import meta data button to open up the wizard
  • Wait while the meta data is loaded...
  • Import the meta data of all the tables, by clicking the
    button. All tables will be moved to the right side
  • Click Next to proceed to the next step
  • Import the meta data of all the foreign keys, by clicking the
    button. All foreign keys will be moved to the right side
  • Click Next to proceed to the next step
  • Click Start to actually import the meta data from the database into your template
  • Click Finish to return to the Project settings view

Cool! You've imported the Gasware Training database model!
