COPY LINKS

Added in 3.1 version.

This allows easy conversion of links from one type to another. This is useful to new developers - for example, you can utilize ODBC import from existing mySQL or Microsoft Access to import relational data, then transform relational schema to highly optimized Valentina types.

The COPY LINKS statement is used to perform link refactoring. See details here.

    : COPY LINKS FROM link1_name TO link2_name
    | COPY LINKS FROM link1_name TO link2_name AND link3_name
