Firebird Federation Data Archive

In order to access the archive database, change the selected database to the ARCHIVE entry in the drop down list of available databases, and use the User Name 'DEMO' and the password 'demo'. Select language NONE as some data sets have non-standard character sets.
Select <Login>
( Some areas of the archive will fail as the DEMO user does not have permission to carry out those actions. )
In order to view the contents of one of the tables, select the Data tab, Open Watch Table, and select the table of interest from the list.
On the same page you will find the CSV Import/Export facility, via which copies of the data can be exported to be used locally. Again select the table to export, a file name to call it at your end ( this can be left as default and changed in your download windows if your browser is set to allow it )
