Synchronize Entries

The Synchronize databases function in the Tools tab can be used to compare two databases and update them.

First, select the file with which you would like to compare the currently opened file and click Open. Next, authenticate for the second file.

You will now see an overview of all differences. On the left-hand side, you will see the file with which you are synchronizing your current file ("External File"). On the right-hand side, you will see your current database ("Current File"). To help you compare the two databases, the size and the date of the last modification will be displayed for each of the two.

The entries are sorted into three categories:

  • Not existing entries
  • Different entries
  • Identical entries

The modification date will be displayed next to each modified entry to help you decide which version to use in which database in the future. To view the differences in more detail, right-click an entry and select View differences.

In the middle, you can define what to do with the entries. To do so, click on the action field and select an option from the drop-down menu. Here, you can adopt changes from either database in the other. Furthermore, you can delete entries. In the bottom left, you can see Recommended actions.

Lastly, click Synchronize to finish.
