039-gridExport  Save the grid's data to an external file format by exporting data from a grid.  Currently, the following formats are supported: Microsoft Excel, HTML, and Text files with ' ~ ', ' | ' or ' , ' used as field separators.  Exporting grid data could be useful to start with AWdb data and use it for something like a mail-merge data file for MS Word, importing data into another application or generating a very specific looking report.

To export a grid:

1.Sort, customize visible columns, and apply filters or groupings to the grid.


If groupings are applied, only those records visible in the expanded nodes will be exported.

2.Select Export... from the Grid menu to open the Data Export dialog.


3.Select the output file format from the drop-down menu.
4.Select the folder where the exported file will be saved.
5.Either accept the default filename or enter a preferred filename to use when saving the file.


Do not add an extension to the filename since AWdb will do that.

6.Click Run.  The grid's data is exported to a file with the specified name in the specified folder.
