2. All company databases
3. Reports.dic – export the reports through Customization Maintenance (Tools | Customize | Customization Maintenance)
4. Forms.dic – export the forms through Customization Maintenance (Tools | Customize | Customization Maintenance)
5. eConnect PRE and POST Procedures if customized
NOTE: The Reports.dic and the Forms.dic may be located on the server or each workstation. If located at each workstation, make sure to backup the dictionaries at all workstations.
