Newbie Import/Export problems Please help!!!!

P: 10
I created a DB to track soldier information. Each month reports are due to Brigade. Each Company and Battalion has there own version of the DB. What I need to do is export data from the Company then import it to the Battalion. Then I need to export the info from the Battalion and import them into the Brigade. This information is either all new for a new soldier or updated info for an existing record for an existing soldier. I need to update all new changes to the info. What is the best method for doing this.

Also, when I try to export a .dbf, it pops up with an error saying there are duplicate field names. Im confused because ieach field name is unique.

Thanks for any help I can get.

Dear Lt. Butler,

Just a simple question. Is All of the files that you're speaking of reside on the same computer and/or network so that you can access each of them from a single computer or is it that they deliver a Diskette or CD with the information on it?

Let me know,

Joe,
The DB will be placed in each Company/Battalions folder on a Network. This is going to let more than person at each level use the DB.

Thanks for the speedy reply
