Exporting Table Data As Text Files

Exporting a table involves a sequence of operations similar to importing a file with the same format. To export a table as a comma- or tab-delimited file that you can use as a merge file with a variety of word-processing applications, complete these steps:

  1. Select the table you want to export in the Database window, and choose File, Export to open the Export Table 'Tablename' To dialog.

  2. Select Text Files (*.txt;*.csv;*.tab;*.asc) in the Save as Type drop-down list. Use the Save In drop-down list to select the drive and folder in which you want to store the exported file, type a name and extension for the exported file in the File Name text box, and then click Save to start the Text Export Wizard.
