  Database manager

Advanced Diary is capable of working with multiple databases. You can create new databases on your own and swap between them while you are working.


The Database manager window looks as following:




In the Database manager dialog box you can see your databases list. You can create new databases, add or edit connections or remove database from list by pressing an appropriate buttons (New, Add, Edit and Remove).

To open any of listed databases, please select this database and click the "Open"button. Also you can switch between databases and in the main window by clicking a button with active database name. You will see a list of available databases:



At the bottom of Database manager window you can see the Active database information: file path, database size, information about records and attachments count etc.
Here you can pack active database file by pressing "Pack" button. This will optimize the database size. We recommend pack database from time to time if you've deleted a large amount of data.
Note: when you connected to a server, Pack function is available for database administrator only.


When you create new database as well as add or edit existing connection, the "Database Connection" window will be opened:



If you are working with local connection (single user), please select an appropriate connection type and enter a full local path to the database file (as you see it from your computer). After this click the "OK" button.

Advanced Diary will create database file (if you choose new database) and add connection to the databases list.
If you would like to share data in a network and connect to a server, please see this help topic for more details:
