WDSQL is used to convert the structure of an HFSQL database into SQL script. Then, this script can be run on an SQL database to create the database corresponding to the HFSQL analysis.
This option is used for example to simplify the creation of an analysis on an Oracle database from an existing analysis in WINDEV format.
Remark: To convert the structure of an HFSQL database, you must be connected to an SQL database. This connection is used to identify the types of columns recognized by the selected SQL database. Theses types of columns will be used when exporting the HFSQL database to the SQL database.
