DESCRIPTION

       v.db.reconnect.all  changes  database  connection  of all layers of all vector maps in the
       current mapset from the source (old_database) to the target (new_database) database. If  a
       link does not match the old_database it is left untouched.

       If  no  new  database  is  given,  the  default datase of the mapset is used as printed by
       db.connect -g. If no old database is given, all layers without a link in the new  database
       will  be  liniked  to the new database. If an old database is given, only links in the old
       database will be changed.

       Optionally attribute tables in new_database can be created if not exist  by  -c  flag.  In
       this  case  v.db.reconnect.all  also tries to create an index on key column (usually "cat"
       column).

NOTES

       The value of the old_database option needs to be the exact string  which  appears  as  the
       fourth field printed by v.db.connect -g.
       v.db.connect -g map=census
       1/census|census|cat|/home/user/grassdata/nc_spm_base/PERMANENT/dbf/|dbf
       v.db.reconnect.all  respect  also  variables  to  be  substituted.  In  the example above,
       database  /home/user/grassdata/nc_spm_base/PERMANENT/dbf/   can   be   also   defined   as
       ’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/’ (see examples).

       Attribute    tables   from   old_database   are   after   reconnecting   left   untouched.
       v.db.reconnect.all deletes those tables automatically only when -d flag is given.

       Also note that v.db.reconnect.all doesn’t  change  default  database  driver  or  database
       (db.connect -p). Default database connection settings for newly created attribute data can
       be defined by db.connect.

EXAMPLES

       In the examples below are assumed, that attribute tables are linked  to  the  vector  maps
       through DBF database driver.

   Reconnect DBF attribute tables to SQLite database
       Reconnect  DBF  attribute tables linked to the vector maps in the current mapset to SQLite
       database:
       v.db.reconnect.all old_database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/’ \
        new_driver=sqlite new_database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/sqlite/sqlite.db’
       If attribute table doesn’t exist in the target database  (new_database)  then  the  module
       prints an error message.

   Convert DBF attribute tables to SQLite database
       For  coping DBF tables to SQLite database and reconnecting them for all vector maps in the
       current mapset must be defined also -c flag.
       v.db.reconnect.all -c old_database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/’ \
        new_driver=sqlite new_database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/sqlite/sqlite.db’
       or alternatively
       # set default connection (sqlite)
       db.connect -d
       # verify default connection
       db.connect -g
       # reconnect
       v.db.reconnect.all -c old_database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/’
       To automatically remove original DBF attribute tables after reconnecting the  vector  maps
       use  -d  flag.  Note  that  attribute  tables  will be deleted permanently from the source
       database. This option should be used very carefully!

   Convert GRASS 6 vector map to GRASS 7 including attribute transfer from DBF to SQLite
       To become usable in GRASS 7, all vector maps in a mapset need to be updated:
       # first rebuild topology for all vector maps
       v.build.all
       # set new default db connection (to SQLite default)
       db.connect -d
       # copy attribute tables from old DB to new SQLite DB, delete old tables in DBF format
       v.db.reconnect.all -cd
