It's common practice to set up tool profiles in your first conversion data before getting or working with your final data, or to do so in a test environment. Re-establishing those tool profiles in the final conversion or in the production database would be time-consuming. VSys offers the ability to export your tool profiles from one database and then import them into another. To do this,
In your current database (the one that contains the tool profiles you want to keep), click on Export tool profiles from within the tool profile setup tool.
Name that file something appropriate, and save it to a folder that you can access later. VSys creates a .vzip file here.
In the new database (the one whose settings you're going to replace with those from the previous database), click on Import tool profiles from within the tool profile setup tool.
Select the file saved earlier. VSys will prompt you to accept this file.
Clicking Import here overwrite existing tool profiles that are also in the import file, but will not affect those which exist now but are not in the import file.
If a tool profile with the same name as an incoming one exists, even with a different code, VSys will overwrite the existing one.
Tool items which refer to saved reports may not import correctly if that saved report does not exist.
