Usage > Imports / exports > Export sequence 

This function is used to extract data towards ascii files according to the structures described by a range of import/export templates which are identified by a sequence code. This export can be total or chronological, i.e. the user can chose to export only the data modified since the last export.

SEEINFO Imported data, if they are translated, will be translated in the connection language of thefolder.

Screen management

Entry screen


The screen that opens is used to enter the parameters related to the requested export. The export procedure is thus launched.

Once the export is done, a window opens and displays a log file which is a recap of the process (there is usually one file per line and a message such as NNN exported lines, and a line for the file transfer to the definitive directory when a temporary directory is used). If there is an error, an error box opens before the display of the log file.




The following fields are present on this tab :

Block number 1

  • Sequence code (field CODE)

This is the code defining both the list of templates to be used and the file path to be considered during the import/export operation. This file path cannot be modified, it is defined in each import/export template, either in the form of an absolute file path or in the form of a relative file path (in this case, it will be looked for in the directories defined in the import/export parameters).

Block number 2

  • Chrono management (field CHRONO)

If this zone is set to 'Yes', it is not possible to export those objects who have been created or modified since the last export where the response was 'Yes'. The field 'EXPNUM' must exist in the table linked to the exported object.



Batch task

This function can be executed in batch mode, but no dedicated standard task is delivered to execute it.
