The metadata is a map of your tables and columns and the datatypes associated with those columns. As long as your table names and columns are remaining the same in the migration, the metadata should still work. If there is something that has been added to the database such as a table or a new column, you can reload the metadata.

To do this:

  1. Use the Metadata Manager and open your iqk file.
  2. Select your Business View, right click and select "modify".
  3. Select "reload".
  4. Select the Data Source of the migrated database.
  5. Enter your login.
  6. Select the new table or the table that contains the new column. Click OK.
You will now have the new table and/or column in your iqk.
