Dumping database contents

Once you dump the database's definitions, you dump the contents of each database object. When you dump database contents, you can dump the following:
*Table contents
*Sequence values
*User table contents
*SQL View File contents
Note: For a complete description of dumping and loading SQL content, see SQL Utilities
The OpenEdge RDBMS provides two methods of dumping database contents: you can use the PROUTIL utility to dump the data in binary format, or you can use the Data Administration tool user interface to dump the data in text format. Dumping the data in binary format with PROUTIL is generally faster.
* Dumping table contents with PROUTIL
* Dumping selective contents with PROUTIL
* Dumping table contents with a Data tool
* Contents file format
* Dumping sequence values with a Data tool
* Dumping user table contents with a Data tool
* Dumping an SQL view file's contents with a Data tool
