Hi,

I'd like to change the default Excel export definition for Termstar NXT in such a way that before every alternative target term a pipe character ('|') is inserted.

How can I do this?

Thanks,

Hans

Modified Excel export definition Jun 8, 2012

Some progression here, made possible by reverse engineering icon_wink.gif.

I've modified the Excel.TED like this:

[GLOBALS]
Version=3.0
DateFormat=
SubTermSeparator=""
[DOUBLES]
Separator=,
Fields=2
[FIELDS]
EntryFieldsEnd=- 1 1 (;|$) 1 0x0407.Term,0x0413.Term,0x0413.EmptyField,0x0413.AlternativeTerm
[Misc]
ParseHeaderInsideEntry=0
IncludeColumnHead=0
HeadWithLangCode=0
[WizardCommon]
Signature=Import Wizard
Version=3.0
Year=2012
Month=6
Day=8
Hour=7
Minute=42
Second=48
[WizardPage124]
HitPage=true
NextPage=123
ImportViewVersion=2
ImportViewCount=5
ImportViewCols=1
ImportViewSep=`
ImportView0=0`DEU.Term
ImportView1=0`NLD.Term
ImportView2=0`
ImportView3=0`NLD.Alternative.Term
[WizardPage123]
HitPage=true
NextPage=-1


If I export this record:

using the modified TED, I get one empty column before the alternative target term:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/509643/Clients/Screen%20Shot%202012-06-08%20at%209.56.33%20AM.png

Not exactly what I want, but I can live with it.

Question: Does someone know, how to put text (like a pipe) in 0x0413.EmptyField?

BR,

Hans


 
GUI? Jul 3, 2012

Hi Hans,

why don't you just use the user interface to modify the export definition?

Hi,

Where can I find the use of the wizard described in the documentation?

Thanks,

Hans


 
Suprise ;-) Jul 6, 2012

My first idea was to search the description of TermStar export script in the TermStar import/export manual. And -- surprise -- there it is...icon_wink.gif
