Database Updates for Existing Employee Project Clock Customers

Version 7 of Employee Project Clock requires major updates to the database files. Once upgraded you will not be able to use any new Employee Project Clock data with older versions. Therefore, it is strongly recommended you backup your existing data before installing. The steps to upgrade your data are outlined below. However, the updates cannot be performed if anyone else is using the program. Before running this version, ensure no one else is running the application on your network. Data from Employee Project Clock version 2.10 or below cannot be used with version 4 and above. If you are using Employee Project Clock version 2.10 or below, you will need to send your data to us for conversion.

The steps below are quite tedious for the average user. Because of this we are happy to upgrade your data for you. Just backup the data in the old version's Data Manager, send us the backup file and we'll do the rest.


Steps to upgrade data from version 2.20 through 5.02 to version 7

1) download the DB conversion software from
http://www.cybermatrix.com/download/epcdbisam2edb.zip.

2) unzip this file into your old data folder. By default the data will be stored in the user Documents\CyberMatrix\EmpProjClock folder. E.g. C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\CyberMatrix\EmpProjClock.

3) run DBISAM2EDB.exe (for multi-user installs you should run this file from one of the client machines so a network database path is stored instead of a local path)

4) click the Upgrade Database button.

5) when the update is finished close down the conversion software.

Then complete the steps listed below to upgrade data from version 6.131 to version 7. You do not have to export the table to CSV as this will have already been done.

Alternatively you could just start over fresh and export any old data you want to keep in CSV format. Then upgrade to v7 and import the CSV files into v7.


Steps to upgrade data from version 6.131 to version 7

In the Data Manager of v6 export every table containing data you want to keep to CSV format. Use the default name supplied, do not change the filename. Export these files into the data folder.

1) download the DB Unicode conversion software from
http://www.cybermatrix.com/download/epcedb2unicode.zip.

2) unzip this file into your old data folder. By default the data will be stored in the user Documents\CyberMatrix\EmpProjClock folder. E.g. C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\CyberMatrix\EmpProjClock.

3) run EDB2Unicode.exe (for multi-user installs you should run this file from one of the client machines so a network database path is stored instead of a local path)

4) click the Upgrade Database button.

Upgrading to a newer version of Employee Project Clock V7

The easiest way to upgrade Employee Project Clock and continue using your old data is to simply install over the old version. Be sure to backup your data first as a precaution. If you want to use your old data in a new folder, you have two options. You will either have to copy over your entire old data folder to the new folder and then point the software to use this new folder or install data in a new folder and then copy over the database files. The database files are those ending with the .EDB* extensions.
