Exporting single or groups Records
« on: March 05, 2010, 07:03:04 pm »
Hello,

How would I select an export only a single record? 

Or, say I wanted to selects a group of records, how can that be accomplished?

Thanks
Banta

Select them in the list, using the conventional Click, Shift-click and Ctrl-click methods. You can also restrict the list to the items you want using a search or Advanced search, and then select all items in the list with Ctrl-A.

Thanks for your reply.

I thought should be that easy also. But, it's not.  At least it doesn't appear top work as I expected.

For instance. I select a single movie in my database, then choose
Export>Plain List and choose a file name.

It still exports all the files in the list, not just the one I selected.

I want to know if I can only export the selected items as described.  If so, can you provide an example of what should work?

Thanks

Try to select movies you want to export. Bookmark them. Filter bookmarked. Export 'em. It should work. Let us know, please.

Sorry, I answered in haste. Buah is correct. The export uses whatever is visible in the list, so you will often need to bookmark and filter to restrict the list.

Buah is correct.

Now, you're discreetly giving compliments to yourself. ;) You thought me this "trick" a while ago...

I'm not, really. I'm getting old and losing my mind. The NOT NULL discussion hasn't helped. ;)

Yes, this appears to be how it works.
Thank You!
