Readerware Loan Client Export Wizard
The Readerware Loan Client export allows you to export the borrowers in your Readerware
to a number of different formats:
- CSV, (Comma Separated Value)
is a standard data interchange format, use it to transfer data to other
programs and databases.
- TAB Delimited - Another
standard data interchange format. You can open a TAB delimited in file in a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel.
A TAB delimited file provides an easy way to transfer your borrowers to an Excel spreadsheet.
These are the basic steps:
- Pick the format you want to export to
- Select the file you want to export to
- Run Readerware export
- Check the results
This is the first page of the Readerware export wizard. The first step
is to select which format
you want to create the file in. Your
- CSV, (Comma Separated Value)
- TAB delimited.
CSV/TAB Delimited Options
When you select the CSV or TAB delimited formats the following options are available:
- Output header line - Include the column header line used to identify the columns contained in the file.
- Enclose fields in double quotes - Readerware will enclose fields in double quotes when necessary. Use this option when you always need the fields enclosed in double quotes.
- Escape new lines - Some other programs cannot import fields containing new lines. Choose this option and Readerware will replace new lines with '\n'.
You need to tell Readerware the destination for the exported data.
Click on the Browse button and select the file
the standard selection dialog.
If you check the Always replace existing file check
Readerware will automatically overwrite this file if it exists. This is
useful if you are doing regular export runs to the same file. If this
not checked, Readerware will display a confirmation dialog before
an existing file.
For TAB delimited and CSV files you can also select the file encoding. This is important if your database contains data in
multiple languages. You are exporting data from Readerware and importing into another program. It is important that you
select the encoding that the other program is expecting. If there is a mismatch then data may not transfer correctly.
ANSI - This is your system encoding and is the default. It will work for databases that contain the system language.
In general you should choose either ANSI or UTF-8. If you are exporting your database to another program on the same system
ANSI should work fine. If your database contains multiple languages or you are transferring the file to another computer, use UTF-8.
But remember the other program must be able to handle the encoding you select, so check their documentation.
Unicode (little endian) - Unicode is a double byte character set and can handle virtually any language
and any combination of languages. Little endian
is used on Intel systems.
Unicode (big endian) - Unicode is a double byte character set and can handle virtually any language
and any combination of languages. Big endian
is used on other systems like PPC.
UTF-8 - UTF-8 is a variable width encoding and can handle all characters in the Unicode character set. It has become
popular as you don't need to worry about endianness.
