This option enables you to import macros into Smart Instrumentation from a predefined intermediate text file that already contains macros exported from another database or domain to the current database or domain.  When importing macros, this text file serves as the source file.  Note that you can also import all the typical tags that have been included in the text file.

 Importing macros requires the existence of a sppid_macro component table in the target database or domain, Domain Administrator access rights, and a predefined source .txt file.

  1. Start the Administration module and log on as Domain Administrator.

  2. With the Domain Administration window open, click Add-Ins > Import/Export Macros> Import Macros.

  3. In the Import Macros dialog box, click Browse.

  4. In the Select file for Export dialog box, select a .txt file from the list.

  5. Click Save to return to the Export Macros dialog box.

    • Select the Include typical tags check box to import all typical tags to the current database or domain from the source .txt file, if required.

    • Before selecting Include typical tags, ensure that the source .txt file contains the required typical tags; otherwise, the macro import process will fail.

  6. Click OK in the Import Macros dialog box.

  7. Click OK in the notification box that appears if macros have been imported successfully.

  8. Click Close in the Import Macros dialog box.
