12.3. Exporting Data

Import and export are really just flip sides of the same coin. When you import, you're trying to save yourself entering data that already exists. When you export, you're trying to save someone else (sometimes you) repetitious data entry.

Anytime you export anything, you should be asking yourself several questions: What is the purpose of the export? Do you need to manipulate the data with another program? Is it for backup purposes? Are you sharing a file or a database with another person? In short, what is it you want to do with the information you export?
