Preparing a Database and Table

Once the schema file has been created, you can turn your attention to the database. If no database exists, one must be created, with the basic System Tables in it. This is done with the CREATDB command. Or if the database is supposed to be on the local machine and does not exist Timport will create it.

To match the database listed in our first schema file, type this command from the command line (or let Timport create it for us):

creatdb /tmp/testdb

Now you can use Timport to import your data to this Texis table.
