How would I get a newly created upr transferred form my desktop computer to my laptop? Want to rebuild my files using
new UPR..also is there a way to view UPR double check what I have put into my UPR?

You can view a UPR in the IVTable Wizard by clicking the Reports button. Click the appropriate checkbox on the Report Viewer... Detail if you want a detailed report showing the matched pairs table entries... Summary if you just want factors and weights.

IMPORTANT - read all the way through to completion before actually doing it.

To Import UPR GroupNames from a source JCapper.mdb file to target JCapper.mdb file:

1. Make a backup of BOTH the target JCapper.mdb file AND the source JCapper.mdb file just in case.

2. Click the Import GroupNames button in the IVTable Wizard. It's located in the lower left hand area of the screen.

On the Import Screen you'll be presented with options for selecting both a source and a target .mdb file.

There's also a checkbox labeled Prompt and Import Single GroupName. Check this box when you want to import the entries for a single GroupName only from your source .mdb file into your target .mdb file.

The "GO" button on the module remains disabled until you've made valid selections for source and target .mdb file. Once you've selected a source and target .mdb file the button becomes enabled.

Verify your source and target .mdb files and hit the GO button.

The Import GroupNames procedure decribed above is a table import. It is not a one record at a time append import like is found in the UDM Wizard when importing UDMs. This routine simply replaces the ImpactValues table in the target .mdb file with the ImpactValues table from the source .mdb file. If you have table entries for GroupNames in the target file that do not exist in the source file, these WILL be overwritten and lost if you run a full table import.

The way to ADD or APPEND table entries from the source file to the target file is to check the Prompt and Import Single GroupName only box and import GroupNames that you want to transfer from the source file to the target file one GroupName at a time.

If you want help with this and/or are worried about screwing it up call me and I will talk you through it.

In all cases it is a VERY good idea to make backups of the source and target files first.
