Specifying Default Export File Types

When configuring an export for a project, you have the option to specify default export file types. If you don't specify default export file types, the defaults stored in the Registry will be used.

NOTE: The export file types you specify are stored in the project file. They are applied only to exports that utilize the current project file.

To specify the default version for each supported export file type when exporting table or summary data for the current project, click the Types... button on the Project Editor's Exports tab.

NOTE: This dialog does not include options for XML-SS, HTML, Fixed Text (TXT), and Delimited Text (typically CSV), as only a single version of each file type is supported by MDP.

The Export File Types dialog box includes the following settings:

  • Override registry settings: Overrides the default export file types currently specified in the Registry.

  • DBF Files: Displays the file format and version to be used when exporting dBASE DBF files. The drop-down list includes all versions of the dBASE DBF file format supported by the Jet 4.0 database engine. Note: The drop-down list also includes a dBASE III (Monarch V3) entry. This option is available for users who have upgraded from Monarch version 3 and who have a need to create dBASE III export files with the exact same structure as those created by Monarch version 3. However, this option should not be required in most cases, as the Jet dBASE III format is only slightly different in structure from the Monarch V3 dBASE III format.

  • MDB Files: Displays the file format and version to be used when exporting MDB (MS-Access) files. The drop-down list includes all versions of the MS-Access MDB file format supported by the Jet 4.0 database engine.

  • OK: Saves the current settings to the Registry (if the Override Registry Settings option is checked) and closes the dialog.

  • Cancel: Cancels any changes you have made to the settings and closes the dialog.
