Extract Survey Data from Vault

285 Views, 2 Replies

When we changed from LDD to C3D we installed Vault and completed several survey projects.  Now we are moving away from Vault and would like to move the survey data.  I go through the process of converting from Vault to Data Shortcuts but the survey data is not available.  Files Survey.sdb & Survey.sdx are tranferred but when I direct the working folder to their location no survey database shows up.  Is there a way to utilize the survey data without using Vault?

What you can do is go to Vault Explorer and check out Survey.SDB file. This will make a copy of the survey database in your Working Folder directory. Then see if you can obtain your survey database.

Thanks Almas, you had sent me that link previously and I lost it.  It works great.
