Convert a Multiterm 7.0 glossary into an Excel file

Hi,

I'm trying to convert a multilingual glossary using the converter macros (TWB.XLA) developed by Sergei Mouraviev, but when I select Import from Multiterm it says: "18 entries imported",
but nothing displays and I have about 500 entries.

I opened my database and went to Termbase/Export Entries, selected
the Tab-delimited export definition, clicked on the Process button and saved
the file as .txt.

Am I missing something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Export to XML ? Aug 6, 2008

Maybe you can export to XML then open your XML file in Excel. I've tried once, it worked but information were not organised the way I wanted.

Yours,
Mathieu.

MultiTerm.xls Aug 6, 2008

Thanks Mathieu. That is exactly the problem, the glossary does not display in the same order that it was originally created before importing it to Multiterm. That is why I was trying to use the Multiterm.xls file that comes with the Converter macro found in the TW users group, but I can't make it work with Multiterm 7.0.

Has anyone used the Multiterm.xls macro with Multiterm 7.0?
