Installing SaveToDB Framework

Installing SaveToDB Framework


Today we discuss installing the SaveToDB Framework.

SaveToDB Framework is a set of database objects that allows configuring SaveToDB features.

You can customize features in a database, and all users get these features in their workbooks.

We discussed the Table Format Wizard in the previous letter.
The wizard uses SaveToDB Framework to store table formats.

Installing SaveToDB Framework requires certain database permissions.

If you do not have such permissions, ask your administrator to execute this operation for you.

To start, open Wizards, Application Installer.

Select a data provider:

Installing SaveToDB Framework - Selecting Provider

Specify your database credentials:

Installing SaveToDB Framework - Connecting Database

Then choose the framework and operation.

You can choose SaveToDB Framework 8 or SaveToDB Framework 7.

SaveToDB Framework 8 is a better choice.
However, choose SaveToDB Framework 7 if you have SaveToDB 7 users.

You can see the actual status of the framework objects: Found or Not Found.

Installing SaveToDB Framework - Selecting Operation

Click Next. You will see the framework SQL code. Click Execute.

As you can see, the procedure is quite simple.

As a result, you have database objects that allow configuring the SaveToDB add-in.

Moreover, you can use Microsoft Excel to edit these tables.

You can find the complete object description in the Configuration section of the SaveToDB help.
