About Importing and Exporting SQL Definitions

The Import/Export functions of the Zim Development Center application provides support for the import/export and translation of database object definitions between the Zim and SQL server environments. In particular, Zim EntitySet and data relationship definitions can be exported to the SQL server to create corresponding tables and indexes. Additionally, SQL table definitions can be extracted from the server's catalog tables, translated, and delivered into the Zim environment as members of the "Fields" EntitySet which is part of the Zim Data Dictionary.

While you are using the import or export facility of the development center, do not be explicitly connected to the SQL Server. Both facilities connect and disconnect from the SQL Server as needed.
