[EP-tech] Re: Bulk export/import

Thanks Ian and George,

This certainly looks to be the solution for us, however we are definitely
hitting the 100,000 record ceiling. I tried running the export and got an
empty file out. So, moving on to the database option - we have done this
to migrate like for like before, however my issue is that the changes I am
concerned about have affected our database structure directly and I want
to try and map this to a more vanilla database. I guess what I¹m wondering
is, what would be the minimum I would need to dump to retain output
metadata and associated types and divisions? Users are where my issue lies
so that is a totally different kettle of fish.
