Synchronization, export and import
Synchronization allows you to merge changes made to two (or more) copies of the database. For example, it is used when several people work with the database or one person administers the database on several computers. The best way in such situations is to synchronize via an intermediate file - on each computer there is its own copy of the database and one shared file that others synchronize with regularly. This intermediate file is located, for example, in the shared network folder or in the cloud (Dropbox and similar services). So everyone can synchronize when it is convenient, regardless of others. In case of communication problems, there is a local copy of the database on the computer that you can use and synchronize all changes with an intermediate file.
Choose a database file for synchronization. Both databases must have similar IDs, i.e. you can synchronize only with another copy of one file. If databases are different, you can simply import all data from another file (Import button). As distinct from synchronization, import does not make changes to the source file.
