The "TableExportToIdt" Command

This command allows you to export some or all tables in a database (in ".idt" format), all binary streams will also be extracted. The "Export to .IDT" facility (or "ORCA") are the easiest ways of manually exporting. You should probably read the "IDT Export Flakey" section.

To extract all files out of CAB files you could unarchive any extracted ".cab" files but its easier to use the installed "MSI MENU... do do this (administrative install).

This command takes these parameters:

EXAMPLE - Import .IDT files

This example is the complete script required to export all tables in a database:

;--- Include the correct support (MAKEMSI.MMH/DEPT.MMH for MSI Creation) ----
#include "OpenMsi.MMH"

;--- Do the work ------------------------------------------------------------
<$Msi "UISAMPLE.msi" ReadOnly="Y">
   <$TableExportToIdt>                               ;;All "normal" tables
   <$TableExportToIdt TABLE="_SummaryInformation">   ;;Output summary information
   <$TableExportToIdt TABLE="_ForceCodepage">        ;;Output database code page information
<$/Msi>
