Attaching and Detaching a Database on Clisp Studio

Introduction

Clisp Studio allows for Databases to be attached and detached whenever necessary.

This Blog can be downloaded as a support document - SUP0078

Detaching a Database

Occasionally you may be required to detach a database in order to restore a database from a previous backup. To detach a database, open Clisp Studio, select the Files > Database Connection


Figure 1 - Files Menu

The Database Connection window will appear. Select the database you wish to detach.

Figure 2 - Select the Database

Once you have selected the database you want to detach, expand the Options drop down menu and select Detach this Database, see Figure 3.

Figure 3 - Detaching a Database

The Database will now be detached and no longer be visible in the database selection.

Attaching a Database

If a database is not available in the database selection menu, it can be reattached, providing you have created the database on the same PC.

Open the Database Connection window (see Figure 1).

Click on the Options drop down menu and select Attach an existing Database

A file explorer window will appear (see Figure 5).

Navigate to the location:

Select the database you want to open.
