ODBC PDL File Import

Using PDL Support

Minisoft has added support in the Schema Editor to read existing PowerHouse® Dictionary Files. The Schema Editor will allow you to create new or modify existing Schema Editor Files based upon the definitions of tables and items.

Optionally open existing Schemas to be modified. You can add File and KSAM file definitions from your PDL file to an existing Schema Editor file.

Select Import PDL File from the File menu.
