If the two databases share the same models.wrm file and the data in each
database is unique (i.e. there is no object in one database that would
overwrite an object in the other), then you should be able to dump out
the entire contents of both database (i.e. select 'Dump all' from the
Admin menu) into two ace files, and then read these into a new (empty)
database that you have created.
