Hi,

I have a multiterm database for Multiterm 5.5 and need to export it to a text file. I want to export the entire database, but am unsure how to set up the export definition. Anyone who could give me some step-by-step instructions for this?

The visible fields in Multiterm are Entry Number, Product, Entry Type, English and Swedish. This is a one-language database only.

I have experimented and got some results, but not satisfactorily.

Thanks in advance for any help.

try running the default export definition Nov 28, 2006

Hi,
If you want to export all of the entries, try running the default export def.
(Termbase>Export Entries>select Default export definition>Process>Follow the steps in the export wizard.
If you want to create your own export definition you've got two options: creating one from scratch (with the export def wizard) - Termbase>Export Entries>Create; or saving the default one and then editing (Select the default one, click on Save, Load it from the location where you saved it with a different name, select it and then click on edit - the export def wizard will appear).
I hope this helps you. What I use is MultiTerm7.

In case I haven't understood your question and what you want is your whole term base into a text file (.doc? - just guessing), check the Word toolbar section on the user guide. It allows you to print your whole termbase dictionary-like in a microsoft word document.

cheers,
silvia.
