MIDAS#14 Out of Notes Part 7: MultiDatabase Export (Midas Rich Text LSX)
Out Of Notes, part 7: MultiDatabase Export shows how we can create collections to be exported with documents from more than one database at a time. There are different ways to include documents from multiple databases. The first we show is by using any of the standard methods to add documents (AddByView, AddByFormula, AddDocBackend, AddByFTSearch) but doing so individually with multiple databases. These documents do not need to be related or connected in any way, The second way we show is by including links at the time of export. That pulls in documents that are linked via doclink, whether or not the documents are in the same or other databases. These linked documents are then accessible following the doclinks in the exported collection, whether in EPUB or HTML or MHT.
The agents used for the demo are shown below. This agent will only work in Midas V5.00.
This extended sample requires Midas 5.00 or higher. If you would like to try out this sample, request an evaluation license, and specify that you want to try Version 5, and one will be mailed to you as soon as the new version is released.
