Expand Library

The Expand Library function copies an entire library, without modification, into a larger empty library. This allows the new library to be used to replace the original with all the same data but with more space for table data. To expand a library, a new, larger library must be created. See Define Library.

After the new library has been defined, select Option 6 – EXPAND LIBRARY on the tablesONLINE UTILITY MENU (see Figure 200). The tablesONLINE EXPAND LIBRARY screen appears, as illustrated in Figure 207. This utility should not be used with libraries defined in tableBASE release 4.1 or earlier.

The Expand utility does not affect the table statistics (the date and time that the table generation was created) whereas the Copy utility resets them.
