Example Scripts

<Execute FilePath="C:\dev\Temp_XML\replicationEZ-secondaryscript.xml"/>
	<Load Server="Acme01/ACME" partial="true">
		<Load Database="AutoTest\lm_us_8.nsf" Select="True"/>
		<Load Database="AutoTest\lm_nab_8.nsf" Select="True"/>
		<Load Database="AutoTest\info_s03.nsf" Select="True"/>
		<Load Database="storebackup.ntf" Select="True"/>
	<Execute FilePath = "C:\dev\Temp_XML\databaseEZ_secondaryscript.xml"/>
	<GridDataComposition FilePath = "C:\dev\Temp_XML\databaseEZ-grid1.xml"/>

In the script above, the databases indicated in the Load block will be loaded into the main grid of databaseEZ, and the file "databaseEZ_secondaryscript.xml" will be executed as if the entire contents of the secondary script were included in the Execute line's position. A pre-saved grid configuration file "databaseEZ_grid1.xml" will then be applied to the main grid.
