Hi all,

we are trying to export a termbase into a Word document. We'd like to format data so that information is nicely laid out.

Do you know how the Before/After Structure/Field Label/Field contents fields work? The user manual says that you can use "formatting tags". Talking about XML tags?

I haven't seen .doc format as export format. How should we proceed to get a neat Word document in the end?

Any help appreciated!

Mathieu.

RTF tags May 27, 2009

About tags used in the formating:

The formatting tags, when exporting to MS Word, are RTF style such as %20 for a blank character; \t for a tab character; \n for a new line character.

Please refer to this site for some advice on this subject:

Why not use a tab-delimited export? May 28, 2009

Provided you tailor your export definition to include all the possible fields in the termbase, a tab-delimited export in RTF or TXT should be "relatively" easy. You can then format it in Word as a table or whatever. It usually entails a bit of adjustment to get it right, but works in the end.
