Skoler DK 2012/13 - DmM Material

Update 11th of April: Update Courses and Morning Assembly for 8th, 9th and 10th class

Several new Morning assembly has been made and is now available. You have to download the course database for the 3 databases and import them. No need to download the study database again

How do the updates work?
An update consist of 6 big files for the databases. Its the complete database for 8th, 9th and 10th class. For each class there is a file for studies and a file for courses. Thats why there are 6 files.
This contains old and new material, so when you import, it will just add the tasks that are not already in the database.
As you know the 3 databases are called "nix pille". This means that you should not add any content to the databases yourself, as you risk to loose it when updating.
If you have added content in other databases that you have created for your school, THIS WILL NOT BE DELETED.

An update also consist for the year and weekplan. This you have to download, save in IMPEX.
You should not import them into your LIVE teams, BUT into the 3 NIX PILLE Teams under Plan & Point.
From here you can see the updates. In this example its an update for week 49 to 51.
Look at the yearplan, write down the title and points for week 49 to 51.
Open the weekplan for week 49 and "Gem Skabelon". Give it a name like "8klasse week 49".
Repeat the same thing for week 50 and 51.

Now open your own teams plan. Make sure the points and title matches the new from updated plan.
Open week 49 and click "åbn skabelon". Find the one you saved for week 49 and Import.
Do the same with week 50 and 51.
It should take you no more than 10-15 minutes to update point targets and weekplan for week 46 to 48.


  1. Make a copy/paste of your current database in C:\mysql\data
    Copy the folder SDBDATA, and paste it in again the same place
    It will be named "copy of sdbdata". Rename it to "SDBDATA 2012"
    In case something goes wrong with points, we can now roll it back again
  2. Go to C:\program files\sdb\IMPEX (on 64bit system the folder is called "program files (86)" )
    Create a folder called Backup
    Move all the old files from IMPEX to IMPEX\backup so IMPEX is clean
  3. Delete previous downloaded material from DmM Support to not confuse it with the new updated databases. Most will find this on the desktop in a folder called "DmM Databases 2012"

Download and move all files to the IMPEX folder

  1. Download the latest version of the SDB program. currenly SDBv7
    Install it. If you get error, its because some users have SDB opened. To get around this in an easy way, restart the server as this will stop SDB program being used.

  2. Downoad the following 6 zipped files directly to your IMPEX folder (c:\program files(86)\sdbv\IMPEX)
    The best way to do this is to right click on the downloaded file and select "Extract here"
    This means the files will be extracted directly into the IMPEX folder where we want them.
    Each of the zipped folders contain 4 files when unzipped. (so its 24 files in total)
