Introduction to Exports in the Consolidation Module

The 'Exports' function allows you to export 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. Alternatively, you can import the information into other Standard ERP databases or Companies using the 'Automatic' and 'Manual file search' import functions in the System module. Remember that Reports can also be printed to disk, so most of the information that is stored in a Standard ERP database is available to other applications via the medium of the text file.

To begin exporting, ensure you are in the Consolidation module and then click the [Routines] button in the Navigation Centre. In the subsequent window, click the [Exports] button. After changing to the Consolidation module, you can also use the Ctrl-E (Windows) or ⌘-E (macOS) keyboard shortcut.

The window illustrated below appears. This lists the Exports that can be produced from the Consolidation module. Double-click the item in the list that you need. 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.
