Data Management Submenu

As you develop your project, you might need to perform management tasks on the project data, such as transferring a complete project, sharing data between projects, comparing the data of two instances of a project or two separate projects, checking the integrity of the data in a project, updating the index statistics on your Firebird project file, or performing various tasks specific to .eap files. Such tasks are not necessarily routine, and would be performed only as the need arises.
