Thanks for your response i did not know about the different naming conventions. That will be very useful.
Thanks a lot

Do I have to always send the excel document and the *.xdt termbase definition so the other person can recreate the termbase?
When using e-mail, sending an export is usually best, given the file size. In addition to the termbase definition (.xdt), you need to run an export (.xml), which you can then compress using WinZip, for example. (This assumes that the recipient uses MTiX as well, of course).
Is there any other way I can just send the termbase and open it in another computer without recreating it each time?
You could send the Access files that contain the termbase; however, MTiX uses different naming conventions: a separate database called MTMaster.mdb
contains a table linking the 'friendly name' (which you assign to each termbase) to filenames. Never delete this database; any changes should be made with utmost care.
I regularly replicate my termbases between my desktop and the laptop by duplicating the entire Termbase
directory - this requires an identical path structure on both machines.
