Import workspace database connections page
The Import workspace database connections page of the Import wizard allows you to import connection information from one workspace to another. After exporting connection information from a workspace to an XML file, you can import that XML file to another workspace.
To access this page, select File > Import, expand the Progress OpenEdge node in the tree view, and select the Database connections node.
Note: You can also access this page by clicking Import on the Database connections preferences page.
The following controls are available on the Import workspace database connections page:
