Introduction to Exports in the Contracts Module

The 'Exports' function allows you to export certain information from your Standard ERP database to tab-delimited text files from where you can incorporate it in word processing programs for mailmerge, in spreadsheets for further statistical analysis or in page make-up programs for incorporation in publicity material or published reports.

To begin exporting, click the [Routines] button in the Navigation Centre. A list of routines appears: click the [Exports] button in the list of routines to open the 'Exports' list illustrated below. This lists the single Export that you can produce from the Contracts module. Double-click the item in the list: a specification window will then appear, where you can decide the contents of the exported text file. Click [Run], and a 'Save File' dialogue box will appear, where you can name the file and determine where it is to be saved.

If you need to export Contracts in a format that will allow them to be imported into other Standard ERP databases or Companies using the 'Automatic' and 'Manual file search' import functions in the System module, use the 'Transaction Registers' or 'Transaction Registers (period)' export functions in the Integration module. To be able to export information using these functions, you must log in as a Person whose Access Group explicitly grants full access to the Integration module.
