How to export data from your DataEase for Windows application

The DataEase export utility lets you export data from a DataEase application to another DataEase (DOS or Windows) application or another software program.

 

1. Open the form or table that contains the records you want to export in [User View];
2. Select menu option: File>>Export; the Export Data dialog should be displayed;
3. Select an Export Format Type (Variable Length Text, Fixed Length Text, or Lotus 1-2-3);
4. Type an Export File Name, including the drive letter and directory path. Optionally, you can click and search your directory structure for a previously defined export file;

 

Note: the below steps are optional:

5. Un-tick “Include Field Names” if you do not want to include the name of each selected field as the first record in the export file;

 

6. Choose a Field Separator character from the drop-down list, or choose Other and type the desired character in the entry box. Be sure to select a character that does not appear in the data. This option is only available if you choose the Variable Length Text export format;

 

7. Choose a Record Separator character, or choose Other and enter a character that does not appear on the list. Be sure to select a character that does not appear in the data. This option is only available if you choose the Variable Length Text export format;

 

8. Click the Options button, then choose the name of the Table that contains the records you want to export;

 

9. If the target program requires a special Text Delimiter in addition to the Record Separator, choose one from the drop-down list or choose Other and enter another character;

 

10. Choose which records (Selected Records) to include in the export file: Current, All, or Range. If you choose Range, enter the first and last record numbers in the text boxes;

 

11. Remove any Selected Fields that are not required for the export. Click OK. After you close the Export Data dialog, DataEase immediately begins creating the export file. While this process is taking place, DataEase displays a message box that tracks the progress of the export. Click Cancel or press Esc to abort the export process.
