Running Database Extract for a Mobile Web Client

The database extract process retrieves data visible to Chris Strong from the server database. It retrieves data according to routing rules that define the level of access to information for Chris Strong. It creates compressed files that contain data to be loaded into the local database when Chris initializes the laptop.
