Using the Data Management Module

Within the Data Management module, a toolbar lets you execute Data Management (FileMonkey) Commands. Each command will prompt you for input parameters and the command is then added to a scripting list area.

Each command may be executed individually or combined with other commands and executed as a group. Single or grouped commands added in the scripting area may be saved as a .fms script file for later use in the module or from a scheduling tool such as TT Chron.

The following buttons comprise the Data Management module:
