Convert a Multiterm 7.0 glossary into an Excel file

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.

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?
